Yours truly in her finest form

I’m Alyssa, or Ari. I’m an aspiring writer and Japanese teacher/translator. I hold a B.A. in Japanese Studies from Willamette University and am moving to Japan in 2018.
I currently have several poems, short stories, and a novel in the works. I’m not published yet, but I’m working on changing that. On here I write things that could be called fiction or poetry or personal narrative.
