I have called the Carolinas home my whole life. Growing up in Greenville, South Carolina, spending my summers in Brevard, North Carolina, and attending university in Elon, NC, I  have always been surrounded by people who value music, art, and community. I now reside in Asheville, North Carolina, and those values still remain true. They have seeped into my inspiration for Carolina Muse, a multimedia literary and arts magazine that uses the creative arts to uplift and empower our communities here in the Carolinas. 

Carolina Muse promotes creative expression that draws meaning from our world and the intricacies of our human experience. We are a seasonal magazine that publishes creative short stories, poems, art, photography, music, dance, and even some scripts and scenes all online in a multimedia format. Our mission is to provide a multi-sensory, immersive platform for young creatives' work that reveals the way various art forms can work together to tell the true stories of our human experience.  If you'd still like to know more, or if you want to see me fight the wind to edit pages on top of Sam's Knob in Pisgah National Forest, see our video below. 

The Carolina Muse team explains their story and their mission to provide a diverse platform for all creatives that have a piece of their heart in the Carolinas.
