My name’s Guilliean Pacheco.
Hard G, rhymes with lillian.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and History from Nevada State College, as well as an M.F.A. in Writing from the University of San Francisco.
I’m a misplaced California girl who lives in Las Vegas normally if one could call living there normal.
I’m a short fiction author, poet, blogger, photographer, editor, web designer, and creativity concierge.
What professional credits do you have?
- I won a special selection distinction for my poem – Las sergas de Esplandián – at the 2019 Helen Stewart Poetry Contest.

- I received my Master of Fine Arts in Writing from the University of San Francisco in 2016.
- Red Rock Canyon, flash fiction from a short story collection to be announced, was published by Helen as part of their Friday Night Specials series in December 2016. It was republished in the online version of their 5th-anniversary issue in 2019.
- I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English, with a minor in History in 2012.

What is this site though? I’m confused!
Understandable! Writeropolis Industries is where people like you can request my creative services. I offer courtesy writing prompts at the Writeropolis Gazette, and maintain Gilly Gram, my mailing list of wonders.
I plan to expand my service offerings with a comprehensive creative masterclass, complimentary mini-writing classes, seasonal writing workshops, a Silent Book Club, a Patreon, a YouTube, and a podcast.
But that’s far down the line, and I’m getting ahead of myself!
I bet your next question is: “what’s a creativity concierge?”
It’s a title I created to explain what I do. I help you be your best creative self, whatever that may be. I help you be you. I’m prepared to help artists, writers, entrepreneurs, graphic designers, photographers, influencers, web designers, knitters, musicians, interior decorators, travelers, chefs, bloggers, painters, bookkeepers, actors, woodworkers, app developers, poets, and everyone in between.
You need someone to support you in your endeavors. Building something from the ground up is tough work. You’re lonely, you’re hyper-focused, and you’re not seeing the big picture.
I’m only human and I get the same way too! I’m not afraid to ask for help, and neither should you.
You can trust me to be straightforward and honest. I can fill in the blanks that you didn’t even know needed to be addressed. You deserve someone who knows how to bring the best you out. I can be that person. You can bounce ideas off me confidentially, and I’ll help you broaden the picture in your creative eye.
Where else can I find you?
