Hi, I’m Cristina, a writer and bibliophile in Pittsburgh. My work explores our identities and relationships through disability and immigrant experiences. Welcome!
In 2020, I received the June 2020 Deaf Artists Award at the Anderson Center and was shortlisted for The Masters Review's summer 2021 Short Story Award. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in McSweeney's, The MacGuffin, descant, Kaleidoscope, and elsewhere.
Now that we've gotten the boring stuff out of the way, here's the important stuff: I love cuddly scarves, cheap port, and first-person narratives. I will talk books anywhere, anytime, and at any opportunity.
Here you can find links to my published stories and my sporadic ramblings on all things literary.
