Kansas City Poet


Steph Castor is a poet and musician. Born on the Central Coast in California, she began playing guitar at age 11 and took three lessons before starting a band. While she still can't read music, most of her narrative comes from half her life spent on the road. Castor enjoys her current days working as a content marketing manager in Kansas City, cooking elaborate meals, and educating queer youth about ongoing ways to smash the patriarchy through performance, civic engagement, and writing. Past work can be found in Guitar Girl Magazine, Guitar World, Tattoo.com, and more. Her debut full-length poetry book Bedroom Music released in March 2019 via Stubborn Mule Press.
