Gabriela Denise Frank

Fiction Writer, Creative Nonfiction Writer

Author's Bio

Gabriela Denise Frank is a five-time Pushcart Prize-nominated writer of fiction and essays whose work has appeared in galleries, storefronts, libraries, anthologies, magazines, podcasts, and online. Her writing has appeared in True Story, Hunger Mountain, Bayou, Baltimore Review, Crab Creek Review, TIMBER, The Normal School and The Rumpus. Her writing and literary art installations are supported by grants, residencies and fellowships from Centrum, Mineral School, Vermont Studio Center, 4Culture, Jack Straw Writers Program, Artist Trust and the Civita Institute. In addition to writing, she has staged literary art experiences including UGLY ME, a spoken-word installation on beauty and the selfie, and A Novel Performance, a month-long installation where she transformed NaNoWriMo into live performance. Her work explores the thresholds of feminism, faith, nature, technology, cities, and characters at midlife—the scratchy, woolen “in-between” of deep vulnerability. A native Detroiter, Gabriela holds a BA in English Literature from the University of Arizona and calls the Pacific Northwest home.
