Olivia Ware

I am a writer and editor based in Portland, Oregon. I spent the better part of my twenties in San Francisco working a collection of oddly creative jobs—think private investigation, sleepy beachside bars, independent audio production, and small press publishing amplifying queer and otherwise marginalized voices—between solo trips to faraway places on the continents of Asia, Australia, and Europe.

I have recently traded in this precarious balance of financial and housing insecurity for more rooted dreams of homesteading in the PNW. I now work towards honing my gardening skills, tending to indoor plants, practicing plant-based cooking, making hand-embroidered textile art, and generally enjoying the outdoors. I adore creative nonfiction.
