A Detroit native and Seattle resident, Gabriela Denise Frank is a creative non-fiction writer and author of CivitaVeritas: An Italian Fellowship Journey, published in 2011. The book documents her experience living in an Italian hill town while on a fellowship sponsored by the Northwest Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in Italy.
In 2012, she participated in the Jack Straw Writers Program, which introduces Northwest writers to the medium of recorded audio and encourages the creation of new literary works. The performance training she received through this program strongly influenced her recently-completed memoir, Hidden City Diaries.
This year, Gabriela was selected to participate in Artist Trust’s EDGE Development Program for Literary Artists, which offers writers a comprehensive survey of professional practices through a hands-on, interactive curriculum.
Gabriela’s work has appeared in a variety of publications including ARCADE, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, Forum and Trim Tab, an online magazine focused on the transformation of the built environment,
