Andrea Gutier­rez  is an essay­ist, poet, and play­wright from South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. In 2014, her first short play, “Las Ami­gas,” was pro­duced as part of the Chi­canas, Cholas, y Chisme the­ater fes­ti­val at CASA 0101 The­ater in Los Ange­les. She is a long­time edu­ca­tor, a VONA/Voices writer, and received her MFA in cre­ative writ­ing at the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side.
