Aara Macauley’s passion for the written arts led her to pursue a B.A.H in Classical Studies and an M.A. in Latin Literature from Queen’s University. Aara ran her own local retail business, Get Funky Boutique for four years and has been involved in the fundraising, event planning, and promotion committees for various local cabaret, film, and arts festivals.

She currently serves as Chair of the Reelout Arts Project Board of Directors, performs in the occasional cabaret, and with local musicians the Huaraches. She is an unrepentant bookworm.

An accomplished juggler, Aara has volunteered in various roles with the festival since 2014, and has worked as administrative assistant, and writers services manager since 2015. Also a discerning and eclectic reader, she sits on the Kingston WritersFest program advisory. This year marks Aara’s sophomore foray into moderating on the Kingston WritersFest stage.
