Guadalupe Flores is the son of a career military man and is a veteran himself, so he has called many places home, but he uses Texas to store all of his stuff. He has worked in journalism and public relations, as well as a slew of other unremarkable jobs, and is currently the assistant director of communications and social media for the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. He earned a bachelor’s degree at The University of The Incarnate Word in English and theatre arts, and a master’s in playwriting at Texas State University in San Marcos. His ten-minute play “The Coyote Stratagem,” was a national finalist in the ten minute play category for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, and was published in Applause Books’ “The Best American Short Plays 2010-2011.” Flores’ first (and only) short story, “My Baby, the Chupacabra” was published in Texas Short Stories 2 by Browder Springs Press. He was participant in the Summer Playwriting Intensive at the Kennedy Center in 2011, was a national finalist for the 2012 John Cauble Short Play award, and was the winner of the Kennedy Center’s Ken Ludwig Scholarship award.
