Alica Forneret is a creative exploring grief, death, and dying through storytelling.


With over 10 years of experience as an editor and writer, Alica's work has taken her all over the world—she's eaten, written, and traveled her way across Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Australia. She now works with an extensive network of international writers and artists as collaborative partners for print and digital death-focused projects.

Alica is currently getting certified as a Life Cycle Celebrant to help people celebrate both life and death. Her work has been featured on the pages of Kinfolk, Modern Farmer, Gather Journal, and Vancouver Magazine


PRAISE for dead moms club

"Love this. Never a club you wanna be a part of...but if you are, you might as well have a badass design."
- Modern Loss Magazine


"Dying is something every human does eventually. Doesn't make it suck any less, but what definitely doesn't suck are these pins Alica Forneret made."
