BivyTales is a creative space for personal musings and collaborations across a variety of mediums, curated by Sara Aranda.

Sara obtained her B.A. in Creative Writing, with an emphasis in Poetry, from the University of California, Riverside. She is a freelance writer and athlete.

With a passion for creating hybrid work, from prose poetry to visual odes, she seeks to further bridge the outdoor recreation world with the literary and artistic, in a way that also transforms all sides.
