Carolina Hinojosa-Cisneros


Carolina is a Tejana poeta, Chicana, and Mujerista from San Antonio, Texas. Her work centers on storytelling and faith and has appeared in On Being, Sojourners, Acentos Review, The Rumpus and others. She is the Poetry Co-Editor of The Journal of Latina Critical Feminism and Poetry Editor of The Thing Itself. Carolina is a graduate student in the English program at Our Lady of the Lake University where she is in pursuit of an MA in English with emphases in literature, creative writing, and social justice. Her recent chapbook, Becoming Coztototl is an invitation to witness and heal through poems which invoke our antepasados and root us in the language of family and home. Carolina’s large project is a decolonial reimagining of theopoetics in the academy as a liberatory praxis.
