      My name is Gina Moriarty and I live in the Pittsburgh area. I'm an emerging non fiction writer querying agents for my debut memoir. 

      My writing mostly covers the themes of misdirection, self-discovery, and heartbreak umbrellaed by hope.

     I graduated Cal U (PennWest) with a Bachelor's in English and a concentration in Literature. I earned my MFA through Chatham University where my thesis was the grateful recipient of the Katherine Ayers Award.


      Links for my publications are below.

               Thanks for stopping by!

 In a piece I wrote recently, "Maybe in the metaphorical drinking life of a writer, publications were simply the free shot: the spider. In the statistics of my personal drinking history, the ratio of the drinks I paid for compared to those I drank for free made the proportion of submissions to publications look like cents on a dollar. If only bartenders had enough sense to say no even half as often as literary magazines, then I might’ve spent more time honing my craft than boning ex-boyfriends."


So, if editors had less sense, there would be more links, but they know best.

 All my rejections move to the revision pile. Check out what made the cut and check back for more!
