Sara Aranda has a B.A. in Creative Writing from the University of California, Riverside and currently resides along the Front Range of Colorado in her white whale (van) with her husband and endless snacks. From running to climbing to lazy afternoons, she enjoys contemplating the intersection of writing and the body, of adventure and art. Her work has been published in Alpinist Magazine, The Climbing Zine, Boulder Weekly, The American Poetry Review, among others. She hopes to explore her mestiza family heritage more in the future and channel collaborative work with her artistic siblings.
