Cristina Correa is originally from Chicago, where she earned degrees in creative writing (BA) and Latin American and Latino studies (MA). She served at-risk youth and their families and supported Latinx art and research as an administrator, grant writer, and teaching artist for more than a decade. She was recently published by Diálogo, The Missouri Review, and TriQuarterly, and awarded recognition by CantoMundo, Hedgebrook, and the Whiting Foundation. Her poem “Reflection from a Bridge” was selected by Tracy K. Smith for the 2015 Best New Poets anthology. Her in-progress poetry collection considers and reimagines landscapes of grief and trauma through diaspora.
