Gabriella Souza lives and works as a writer and editor in Baltimore. She began her writing career as a journalist and has won local and national awards for her work that has appeared in Brine Literary, USA Today, The Virginian-Pilot, and Baltimore magazine. Journalism provided her initial inquiry into character, which continues in her fiction work. She is motivated to explore emotions and experiences that are
universal yet unique, using hints of fabulism to illustrate the intensity of her character’s emotions. She recently completed the MFA program at Antioch University in Los Angeles.
