Gabriella Marie Geisinger

IMG_5178Gabriella Geisinger was born in July to a poet father and a psychotherapist mother in a small apartment off Washington Sq. Park. She attended a hippie-waldorfian-elementary school where she never quite learned to multiply. At age ten, Gabriella began the United Nations International School. She attended Connecticut College, where she was selected by the head of the theatre department to write an interview based play on the Alliance for Living, New London’s AIDS Service Organization. After two years of interviews, editing, hair-tearing-out, and frantic typing, Gabriella successfully completed Life With Three Little Letters: Living with HIV, and directed a staged reading of it at the end of her senior year.

Upon graduating, Gabriella interned at SPIN, where she had an album review published. She began writing for iCrates.org, a magazine devoted to vinyl music, and was hired as a staff writer for top5.com, where she has over fifty articles published. Gabriella has written for The Silver Tongue News, and covered arts for AOL’s Patch.

Gabriella has relocated to London, where she is pursuing her masters in Creative Writing: Narrative Non-Fiction at City University London, and is a music journalist with The Quietus. She has poems published by Sassafras Lit Mag, Black Heart Magazine, Citizen Brooklyn, and DUPE, and has written as a Character Crush Columnist for Black Heart. She has contributed to Planet Ivy, Music Vita, Electric Banana, and Noise Cannon, and The Metropolist. Her favourite authors include Dylan Thomas, Irvine Welsh, Chuck Klosterman, Naomi Iizuka, and Shakespeare.
