Dara Crawley is a creator producing poetry, zines, and random artwork. Most of her work explores belonging, systemic alienation, and complex relationships. You know, light stuff. She works as a diversity consultant for roleplaying companies, and authors, and as a mental health advocate /therapist. You can usually find her curled up in her favorite recliner, and listening to either folk music, funk or vaporwave. And if you can’t find her then track down the nearest cute dog because there’s a 50/50 chance she’s already there.
