“I am a human. As a writer, I am also very much a human. My writing is coming from a poetry-based place, so I play with words, imagery, rhythm, and the way text looks on the page. I am aesthetic appreciating, as well as a very feeling-based and experiential focused creative. I like to play with form and believe in form following content. I believe in telling the story truth and the feeling truth, as everything that is experienced “in truth” is not always the story that tells it. I see writing as a vehicle for voice. It is a tool for advocacy, political, personal, communal, creative, at times grave and at times playful. I am interested in community through the use of writing, though the expressions it allows for, the connections, the truth- seeking and finding and in being in roles of support and creation in these processes. It matters to me that women and marginalized groups in society have mediums that give them voice, and that I am an active participant in listening, attending, and being an ally as much as it is important to me to create in my own vision through the use of my voice, which I hope will resonate with the experience of truth for others.” (From Gina’s website)
“All Small Carcasses” is a collection of flash fiction pieces about New York City. Three friends, venturing into the undefined space of the work force, in various states of dependency on family and the dysfunctions afforded them because of their upbringings, come together to attempt to make sense of themselves. Through their shared and disparate trajectories and the city that often delivers its own answers and queries, they fill in the spaces left in their collective experiences, to produce a semblance of wholeness.
