Cristina Correa is a writer and educator from Chicago, where she served youth and Latine communities for more than a decade.
Cristina Correa’s writing and research focus on ecocriticism and grief in diasporic Caribbean & Latine poetics as a conduit for anticolonial power. Her work testifies to what she and her dead have come to bear in language that supports the ones who follow still. She is the recipient of fellowships and awards from CantoMundo, Carolyn Moore Writers House, Hawthornden Foundation, Hedgebrook Foundation, and the Kenyon Review, among others. Her writing has been published, broadcast, and exhibited in venues including the Academy of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day series, Best New Poets series, Missouri Review, Obsidian: Literature & Arts in the African Diaspora, Prairie Schooner, NPR’s Latino USA, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and elsewhere.
