Celina (she/they) is a genderqueer poet, educator, child caregiver, and food garden manager. They are from Knoxville, Tennessee and live in the Twin Cities. She received her MFA at Randolph College. She teaches English at Century College. She runs porch swing, a collaborative space for writers.

When they are not reading and writing, Celina finds themself in the water, in the dirt, beheld in wonder and play with young people, and leaning into the wisdom of adrienne maree brown in that “all organizing is science fiction.”
