Meet Khôra, a dynamic online arts space produced in collaboration with groundbreaking author Lidia Yuknavitch’s Corporeal Writing. Plato described khôra as a “formless interval, alike to a non-being,” and in that spirit, Khôra is committed to writers and artists who explore the creative by and through an ever-evolving and expansive lens. We are honored to showcase the work of polyphonic, multi-genre writers and artists.
Every month, Khôra will publish new work from a curated team of writers and artists. When you subscribe for free, you’ll receive issue highlights straight to your inbox (no one will be turned away due to lack of funds). Subscribers will also receive extra goodies like access to our Zoom happy hour, occasional speaker series, subscriber-only posts, virtual care packages, and more to come. The extras might take a month or so to get going… and in the meantime, we think you’ll love what you read!
Issue 1 Highlights
In every issue of Khôra, we will feature the work of a curated team of four writers and four artists. This team will change every four months. In addition, we feature the work of one groundbreaking writer and one visual artist.
Here’s what we’re excited about in Issue 1:
Tug by Diana Khoi Nguyen
Poet and multimedia artist Diana Khoi Nguyen is the featured writer for Khôra’s inaugural issue. She is the author of Ghost Of, which was selected by Terrance Hayes for the Omnidawn Open Contest in 2018. Among her many awards, Diana was also a finalist for the National Book Award and L.A. Times Book Prize. Her exquisite piece, Tug, is made of both visual and written texts, and is on display as a gallery of four images.
