A NOVEL PERFORMANCE: THIRTY DAYS IN SEATTLE’S CENTRAL LIBRARY
What is it like to move your living room into a public library for a month–and write a novel while the public looks on? Read Gabriela’s essay in The Rumpus about her month as a writer in residence at Seattle’s Central Library where she turned National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) into a live performance.
SHIFTING GEARS & WHAT WE RETURN
Read Gabriela’s flash fiction piece, “What We Return,” published by Word Riot and her essay, “Shifting Gears,” recently published in Bird’s Thumb. Both works employ totemic touchstones as a means of examining familial relationships.
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. The story is here as is a brief interview with Gabriela.
PAS DE DEUX
If you’d like to have your spine tingled, check out this 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.
