I send “newslessays” (aka newsletter essays, with photos embedded) twice a month via Substack, and I’m working on adding more missives to the mix. Subscribe for free below, or see a preview at thecorestories.substack.com!

OUR STORIES GIVE US GROUNDING.

They transform experience to roots. They harvest fruits from where there once was only mud. They contain the seeds of what’s to come.

DIG IN...

HI, I'M LEAH.

I'm the face behind The Core Stories.

I’m a writer, visual artist, and farmer. I’m also an astrologer and narrative coach. Whether working with soil, stars, or psyche, my role is to…

- connect common threads
- articulate tricky truths
- uproot the weeds of internalized oppression
- celebrate the richness in life’s mud
- and advocate for healing and renewal — on personal, collective, and systemic scales.

HERE'S MY FULL STORY...
