OUR STORY

Artemis Ward is our pen name and represents a collection of modern-day storytellers. 

The name appears more than once throughout history. Artemus Ward was the name used by 19th century humorist and storyteller Charles Farrar Browne. Browne traveled the country as a lecturer and storyteller and was a friend and contemporary of Mark Twain, one of America's seminal storytellers. 

Browne had taken the name from Artemas Ward, a Revolutionary War general and second in command to George Washington who became the namesake for Ward Circle in Washington, DC—this agency’s hometown.
