khōréō’s second annual fundraiser was a resounding success!
Thank you to everyone who supported our second fundraiser. We were able to fully fund our second issue—AND increase our pay rate for authors!
If you weren’t able to contribute to our fundraiser, there are other ways you can help. Please consider:
- Reading our stories and sharing them broadly
- Subscribing to our audio releases on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or Spotify (and rating us!)
- Purchasing an issue/subscription in our store or on Weightless Books
- Volunteering with us
Issue 1 of our second year is out now!
Issue 2.1 is now live! If you’re a subscriber, you should already have access to this issue. Miss out? Never fear: you can buy a copy of the issue, or a subscription for the whole year, in our shop.
We publish fiction, non-fiction, and art; our stories are fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and any genre in between or around it—as long as there’s a speculative element. We’re especially interested in writing and art that explore some aspect of migration, whether explicitly (themes of immigration, colonialism, etc.), metaphorically, or with a sly nod and a wink.
Any act of migration, whether voluntary or forced, requires a recalibration of self-identity. We are defined, after all, by the environment that surrounds us: people, language, food, smell, sound. To change any one of them may be disorienting; to change them may leave us adrift. What better medium to explore this sensation than speculative fiction, where the author must create a new world for the reader to inhabit?
