Who We Are

core. is a quarterly zine dedicated to emerging artists and writers in the Kansas City area. 
This zine pays its contributors and is free to the public. I believe it’s important to pay artists for their time and work and creativity, and also that it is vital for the public to have easy access to the arts. 
The arts can and do change lives. By working together, building community and connection, we can provide a new outlet for artists and help the community see the power and beauty in the arts. 
Our first issue is coming soon (in print and online).

Stay tuned for artist and writer highlights, local events, and more! If you’d like to submit to core email and I’d be happy to chat with you.
