Coal Zine was started by Kelsey, a self-taught digital collagist. Originally from the Caribbean, she now lives in the Mid-West. The Zine seeks to highlight digital collages that put women of color, at the center of the work.

Coal Zine has a strong preference for work that disrupts the prevailing visual narratives of women of color. In general we welcome surrealism, work that highlights the whimsical, fairytalesque and playfulness of womanhood.
