Gabriela Pereira is the Creative Director and Founder of DIY MFA, the do-it-yourself alternative to a Masters Degree in writing. Gabriela creates tools and techniques for the serious writer so they can get the “knowledge without the college.”
She holds an MFA in Writing from The New School and has taught at several organizations throughout New York City, including 826NYC, Everybody Wins and the East Harlem Tutorial Program.
When she’s not teaching or designing learning tools for DIY MFA, Gabriela enjoys writing some fiction of her own. She especially loves writing middle grade and teen fiction, with some “short stories for grown-ups” thrown in for good measure.
