Guest: Gabriela Pereira, founder of DIY MFA
Gabriela Pereira is a author, speaker, and self-proclaimed word nerd who wants to challenge the status quo of higher education. Her mission is to empower writers to apply an entrepreneurial mindset to their professional growth.
Gabriela earned her MFA from The New School, in New York. While undercover as a graduate student, she learned the inside scoop on MFA programs, invented a slew of writing tools all her own, and developed a new, more effective way for writers to learn their craft. Now she shares what she discovered and helps writers around the world get the “knowledge without the college.
In this episode of DISRUPTOR, Gabriela talks about her plan to give every writer the opportunity to benefit from the kind of knowledge shared in MFA programs.
She also discusses her current quest – to help writers dealing with depression and other emotional concerns succeed in their literary journeys.
