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. She teaches English at community colleges and introduces playful poetry to young people at Society of Young Inklings.

When she is not reading and writing, Celina finds herself in the water, in the dirt, beheld in wonder and play with future generations, and organizing for the planet, abolition, and land back for Native Nations.
