“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”
Oscar Wilde said it, and I live by it. ☽
My name is Ariana DeCastro and I’m a freelance editor & writer based in Las Vegas. You’ll probably find me at a Barnes & Noble coffee shop with my nose stuck in a book or a pen stuck in my hand. Butterflies, crystals, and puppies make me smile, and I try to find a little magic in everything I see.
I graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in print journalism and creative writing. There are piles of short stories and poetry collections on my desk waiting to be seen, but I do have a few pieces floating around in newspapers and websites.
I’ve been featured in the University of Nevada Las Vegas’s weekly newspaper, The UNLV Scarlet & Gray Free Press, where I was the chief copy editor, and I am also a published writer and contributing editor for UNLV’s long-form, multimedia publication, Rebelfolio. I was also the editor-in-chief of The Odyssey Online‘s UNLV community and an intern for The Philippine Times of Southern Nevada.
But I’m most excited about finally having my own space to share with you guys!
With so much love,
