Gabriela writes poetry and short stories in Anchorage, Alaska, under the season of the midnight sun or the long nights of winter solstice. A series of her poems and photographs were featured at the University of Alaska’s Arctic Perspectives: An Art and Science Event. Gabriela’s day job is a social science researcher, traveling and engaging with communities in remote Alaska. She is also a board member for the Alaska Center for the Book. Her work explores the intersection of culture, nature, and identity. Weaving people interacting with place, she writes the blurring of those boundaries.
Gabriela Halas worked with the poet Ken Waldman.
