Celina writes poetry and children’s literature. Her work is featured or forthcoming in Hooligan Magazine, Peach Mag, and Rabid Oak as a Best of the Net Nominee. She is from East Tennessee and lives in the Twin Cities. She received her MFA at Randolph College and currently teaches English at Century College in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

She’s not usually “writing,” but finding ways of decolonizing her mind and body by moving into her relationship with this home planet and all the life inside it, which inspires some poems and reconstructing language on the white rectangle we call the page.
