Cecilia Caballero

is creating poetry, essays, short fiction, speculative memoir




Welcome! My name is Cecilia Caballero and I am an Afro-Xicana mother, short fiction writer, poet, essayist, and PhD candidate in American Studies at USC. I am currently working on several poems and essays and a speculative memoir manuscript, and my goal is to publish these into books. As Afrofuturist feminist foremother Octavia Butler taught us: so be it, see to it! Your pledge will help bring me closer to my publication goals.

Chicana M(other)work:  I am a co-editor for the book, The Chicana M(other)work Anthology: Porque Sin Madres No Hay Revolucion, recently published from the University of Arizona Press and The Feminist Wire book series. You can purchase the book here: https://uapress.arizona.edu/book/the-chicana-moth... and you can find out more about my work with the Chicana M(other)work collective here: https://uapress.arizona.edu/book/the-chicana-moth...

What your Patreon pledge will do: Your financial support will help me produce more work. Pledges will help me pay for workshop and submission/reading fees for contests, workshops, and fellowships. Patrons will also get access to some of my previously published work and some of my current working drafts. Thank you for your support! Every dollar counts.

My Writing Idols (in no particular order!): Audre Lorde, Octavia Butler, N. K. Jemisin, Nnedi Okorafor, Sabrina Vourvoulias, Gloria Anzaldua, Assata Shakur, Ana Castillo, Carla Trujillo, Aurora Levins Morales, Saidiya Hartman, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, James Baldwin, Roxane Gay, Carmen Maria Machado, and many more radical queer writers of color.
