ANA MARÍA CABALLERO
Ana María Caballero is a first-generation Colombian-American poet and artist. Her work explores how biology delimits societal and cultural rites, ripping the veil off romanticized motherhood and questioning notions that package sacrifice as a virtue. She is the author of five books and has a sixth volume forthcoming in 2024. As co-founder and curator at digital poetry gallery theVERSEverse, Caballero is transforming the way poetry is experienced, exhibited and transacted.
She has been a speaker at events organized by the University of the Arts London, Sovereign Nature Institute, Untitled Art Fair, JustMAD, AWP, and the International Women of Blockchain Conference.
Caballero is the recipient of the Beverly International Prize, Colombia’s José Manuel Arango National Poetry Prize, the Steel Toe Books Poetry Prize, and a Sevens Foundation Grant.
