Gabrielle Drolet is a writer and a dog person. She lives in small town Nova Scotia, Canada, with her girlfriend and the plants they’re struggling to keep alive. She primarily works in nonfiction: her essays and articles, which are about everything from people to tarot cards to sex toys, have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Teen Vogue, VICE, The Globe and Mail, and more. She also occasionally works as an illustrator/cartoonist, with drawings having appeared in The New Yorker and forthcoming in the CBC.
Gabrielle is currently a graduate student at the University of Guelph, where she’s studying creative writing and working on her fiction. When she’s not writing, she’s trying to get better at chess (with a lot of difficulty), reading graphic novels, and learning how to forage mushrooms.
Her favorite writers include Mariko Tamaki, Tracy K. Smith, and Michael Ondaatje. She’s currently reading Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and re-reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt.
