My name is Gizelle.

I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

I have a BA from Mount Holyoke College in African-American and African Studies and a minor in Journalism (2012), and an MFA in Poetry from University of Florida (2017).

My poetry and non-fiction have been published or are forthcoming in Muzzle Magazine, Kinfolks Quarterly, Blackberry Magazine, The Offing, For Harriet, Moko Magazine, and elsewhere.

I have provided editorial assistance for Subtropics, The Jeli, and Journal of Undergraduate Research. I have edited marketing copy, blog posts, academic journals, literary magazines, and book manuscripts. I have also edited tenure track papers/articles, dissertations, theses, and proposals in Public Health, Law, Literature, and Architecture from University of Florida, Indiana University (Bloomington), and University of Notre Dame.
