Ever since high school, Giancarlo has written editorial and promotional content for various publications. He has not only reviewed poetry and short fiction (for Polyphony Lit and Helen) but also gotten his own poetry and short fiction published (in Star 82 Review and Atlas and Alice). He has also written blog posts for the F(r)iction Log, including a series of blurbs for little-known animated films from around the world. Since starting as a freelance feature writer at Looper, he has covered major releases such as "Avatar: the Way of Water" and "She-Hulk: Attorney-at-Law." He also serves as a Teaching Assistant for Polyphony Lit, writing personalized feedback for every student that completes the course How To Be a Literary Editor.
