Gabriela Denise Frank is a Seattle writer and author of CivitaVeritas: An Italian Fellowship Journey. 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.
From essays and fiction to performance, Gabriela’s work explores concepts of self-image, aging and a deep enchantment with relationships of all kinds. Influenced by journey and place, her writing is grounded with a rich, tactile sensibility and passionate characters who search at home and abroad for acceptance, love and, ultimately, themselves.
An alumna of the Jack Straw Writers Program and the EDGE Development Program for Literary Artists, Gabriela’s work has appeared in a variety of publications including ARCADE, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, Forum and Trim Tab. Her short story, “Pas de Deux,” was published by New Lit Salon Press. In 2014, Gabriela completed A Novel Performance, a month-long live performance residency at Seattle’s Central Library wherein visitors could watch her write the first draft of a novel in real time.
