Gabriella Torres is the author of two chapbooks, Sister (Lame House Press, 2005) and The Emergence of Brood III (Delere Press, 2014), and is a Pushcart Prize nominee. Her work is largely informed by her experience of growing up Latinx in the rural Midwest. Her poems are deeply influenced by Midwestern landscapes and wildlife.

Gabriella spent seven years in New York City and six years in Seoul before moving back to her hometown of Clinton, Iowa, in 2015. She is currently the Youth Services Librarian at the Clinton Public Library where she works towards, among other things, developing community-based creative writing initiatives that promote engagement and dialogue and work towards creating a culturally rich, diverse, inclusive, and equitable community. 

She co-edits the tiny with Gina Myers.
