Arielle Tipa is a writer and editor who lives near a haunted lake in New York. Her prose and poetry is influenced by the bizarre, the macabre, the mundane, and the fantastic, often exploring the concepts of imagination and illness. She earned her A.A. in Journalism from Suffolk County Community College in 2012, and later her B.A. in Comparative Literature and English in 2015 from Stony Brook University, where her research project was overseen and mentored by literary folklorist Ruth B. Bottigheimer. Arielle’s writing has been praised by some as being “beautiful”, “haunting”, as well as “weird and wonderful “, while her mother describes it as “puzzling”. Her work has been published in Alien Mouth, Grimoire, (b)OINK, Ellipsis Zine, and thread, among others. Apart from writing fiction and poetry, Arielle is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Occulum, a literary journal of the unabashed and unorthodox. She has no published books or chapbooks as of yet, but is currently working on her first novella.
In 2017, Arielle was selected by Maudlin House as one of their Writers of the Week.
