Read Gabriela’s essay, “Shifting Gears,” which was recently published in Bird’s Thumb. The essay employs a totemic touchstone as a means of examining familial relationships — namely how we struggle to find common ground with each other and, occasionally, why we abandon it.
INTO THE LIGHT
Gabriela recently published “Into the Light” in Works (of Fiction) in Progress Journal. The story centers on two characters whose complex legacies come to clash, challenging the reader to consider whether we are at the mercy of our conditioning, or if it’s possible to shape a different fate for ourselves.
PAS DE DEUX
If you’d like to have your spine tingled, check out this new volume by New Lit Salon Press, which contains Gabriela’s Pushcart Prize-nominated short story, “Pas de Deux.” Available in print and digital editions.
The anthology examines intersecting issues that affect the mental health of women, from physicality and sexuality to race, class and motherhood. And it’s got damned good illustrations.
