Ariana is an experimental poet and writer, wannabe zine queen, and intersectional activist. While not from the literal bayou the self-proclaimed “swamp baby” hails from Louisiana and is Florida raised. (Five minutes from Gatorland and evacuated from the playground because of a bobcat Florida raised.) An amalgamation disintegrating onto paper, Ariana writes as a sociologist, an empath, and a musician amongst other things. And just like a swamp her writing has a silent rhythm, it is a transition zone, a forested wetland of healing trauma and metaphors.
