For 20 years, Kore Press has engaged in progressive social change by lifting up the voices of women and grrls through literary activism. We are one of three feminist presses in the country that has lasted 20 years, the only one to publish more than 5 literary titles/year and invest in the next generation of female leaders. Our goal is to ensure sustainable growth for another 20 years, with rigorous reflection and bold investment, to transform Kore Press into a prominent, national beacon for ALL women in the literary arts.
As a community of literary activists devoted to bringing forth a diversity of voices through works that meet the highest artistic standards, Kore Press publishes women's writing to deepen awareness and advance progressive social change.
Kore Press is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) arts organization made possible only by grants, book sales, and gifts from individuals like yourself.

A cross-generational, cross-cultural, civil discourse project in Tucson, AZ. Teen grrls trained in the documentary arts are conversing with female veterans and service members in AZ to record their stories, and reflect on their own experiences. Grrls will create radio stories for public broadcast and interviews will become part of on an on-line audio archive for civil discourse.
