Whispering Prairie Press was founded in 1991, and evolved out of the Kansas City Writers Group. The press began by publishing anthologies of local writers, and has evolved to publish writers and artists from around the world. Now in our 13th year of publishing Kansas City Voices, the organization has grown to attract wide audience and publish a diverse body of work with strong voices and artistic vision. Our mission to promote and encourage artists and writers is carried out by an entirely volunteer organization. We are donor supported, and as a 501 c3 non-profit organization we also fund our work through grants from ArtsKC and MAC.”
Kansas City Voices is an annual publication of poetry, prose, and visual art. We look for artists and writers with unique viewpoints and strong vision. The pieces are compiled into an 80 page, advertisement free, glossy magazine that mixes the art, poetry, and prose into a unique compilation. We open for submissions on December 15th and close on March 15th of each year.
