Hey there, Editor-in-Chief, wordchefsteph here!

I created KCB the mag because I wanted to create a space that was trippy, existential, nostalgic, and fun. A safe place for feeling.

I'm a writer, editor, teacher, and personal empowerment enthusiast from Spanish Harlem in NYC. I studied writing and rhetoric in college, then went on to teach ELA and writing to middle and elementary school students. Now, I teach writing classes to adults at Gotham Writers Workshop.

My work has been featured in Thought Catalog, Collective World, FGRLS Club, Unpublished Zine, Ghost Girls Zine, and wind-up mice journal. I will also be published in Sumou mag this summer, and I still have my eyes on a bunch of other literary magazines for my other work!

Submissions for Issue 001: Finding Joy are currently closed, but it's expected to release this fall. Stay tuned!

With good vibes,

Stephanie
