Adele Aria writes non-fiction, poetry and short fiction, using story-sharing to explore identity, the politics of existence, and the ways in which we integrate personal and shared histories.
"As much as I love words and jotting down ideas, my writing practice has never been a formal routine but more so a passion project and a creative way to sift through my thoughts/feelings/observations."
"At the beginning, I questioned my own memories of my dream of wanting to be a writer ‘all my life’. I wondered whether this was another wisp of a child’s memory that I had held fondly but had blurred with time and the lens of romanticism."
