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.
Supported in part by the Tucson-Pima Arts Council/KRESGE,
The Southwest Foundation, and AZ tax credit donors.

Exactly how much does language shape perception? In Reading Emily Dickinson in Icelandic, Heisler explores the materiality of language with a collection of prose poems inspired by her nine years in Iceland.
"Bernardi's poetic prose is hypnotic and original"
Ruminating on the fundamental mysteries of human life--the tenuous nature of memory, bereavement, and grief, as well as the vexing complexity of familial connections--Bernardi explores the pleasures of slowing down, and the deep losses incurred by not taking time to look and listen.
"Hembree extends her unmistakable voice and lightning-quick vision into areas of American life too often left unlit. The voice flows through barriers of time and space as well as class and gender, willing to illuminate and love the darker and more dubious identities we’re capable of inhabiting. An unforgettable music stamps these lines on the heart: “Remembering is / like putting a feather underneath / the skull…"—Laura Mullen
"In this vivid, near-submerged world, I paid particular attention to the ways in which containment and incompetence were worked out by the writer. Chan Brown sets a strict boundary--"Don't wait"--only to assess its transgression: "Come quickly." Go. Come
back. Stay. Double Agent is a flip-book of the very best kind."—Bhanu Kapil
“Barber’s perceptions are so specific and surprising in these beautiful and rigorous poems, her diction and music so pure, her rhetoric so without excess or self-congratulations that her discipline as an artist seems supernatural.”—Vijay Seshadri
“The Death of Carrie Bradshaw is a story full of humor, insight, an act of god, and a great cast of major and minor characters. A rarity in short fiction, it manages to feel uplifting at closure without one unearned moment. A treat.”--Antonya Nelson

Kore has been publishing the creative genius of women writers since 1993, in part to maintain equitable public discourse and an accurate historic record. Greek for "daughter," Kore (kor-ay) recalls the myth of Persephone in which a daughter is taken into the underworld and re-emerges half the year because of a bargain struck by her mother and the nasty fellow down below. The daughter's emergence from the dark depths each year, like the creative process itself, marks a time of change!
