Hello! I'm K. A. Cook, creator of the Tumblr blog @aroworlds: a place for aromantic creatives to find an aromantic audience–and aro audiences to find aro-centred creative media. As a nebularomantic creator struggling to get my work out into the world, I made this blog as a one-stop home for aromantic art, fiction and expression.

Followers can find fictionfanfictionpoetryfanartoriginal artpride merchpride crafts and flag edits for identities across the aromantic spectrum.



My projects include the Aro-Spec Artist Profiles, where other aromantic-spectrum creatives in all disciplines talk the intersection of their creativity and their aromantic experiences, and Hallo, Aro, a flash fiction series about allosexual aromanticism (aromantics who experience sexual attraction). I also write short stories and novelettes about trans, queer, mentally-ill, disabled and autistic characters on the aromantic spectrum. The Marchverse and Eagle Court books all feature aromantic protagonists, and most of my stories are available for free!



On my sibling Tumblr, @alloaroworlds, I've authored several posts about allo-aro experience, erasure and equity.

I also run the website Aro Arrows, a free aromantic arrow image and flag archive. There's little in the way of extant stock images, so I wanted to make sure that every aro, irrespective of artistic or financial ability, can display their pride on websites and in publications. My collection is currently limited, so your support will help me develop a broader range of images depicting all shapes of aromantic pride.



My next project is to create and design a community-authored allo-aro zine aimed at LGBTQIA+ and a-spec organisations. Few general aromantic resources and guides do more than acknowledge that not all aromantic-spectrum folks are asexual, and I don't think this goes far enough in educating others on the needs and experiences had by allo-aros. A zine is the next step in making our voices more accessible both inside and outside aromantic community spaces.



Your patronage means that I am able to keep freely posting some of my fiction (so aromantics have access to representation irrespective of income) and further develop community resources and publications. It will allow me to spend less time worrying about how I'm going to survive and more time creating the content my community needs to thrive.

You can find out more about my creativity and aromantic identities on my bio page and my own artist profile. Thank you so much for your kind support!
