I started writing fiction at the age of 14, and underwent a major development in my writing style and process in 2020-21. I am a discovery writer who writes literary fiction novels about character relations and trauma. I started writing poetry in 2021 and have been writing free verse since then.
I'm a senior in highschool, and I really love journaling every time I feel a strong emotion, and it takes form in poetry. I began sharing my writing with my english teacher, and she recommended that I share some of my work with a writing group!
This is becoming a hobby of mine, and I would love and appreciate any feedback from my work!! I would love to know any initial thoughts, overall feel for the piece, things you like or notice, and things I could do better!

Hello! My name is Arianah. I'm a 23 year old writer and artist currently based out of Eugene, OR. I write fiction mostly. I also write poems, songs, essays, fragments, notes, grocery lists... You never know. Words have always been the beginning and end of everything for me. I studied English and Creative Writing at Princeton University and graduated in 2020. It has all been one hell of a story so far, and to be honest I doubt I could pen a more provocative, entertaining, and painful piece of work. Still, I think it's worth a shot.
