I’m Caroliena Cabada, and I’m a writer based in Ames, Iowa.

I’m the recipient of the 2018-2019 Pearl Hogrefe Fellowship in Creative Writing at Iowa State University, where I’m pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing and Environment. I am currently co-managing editor of Flyway: Journal of Writing and Environment.

Before moving to Ames, I was a Social Media Associate for the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Food and Sustainable Agriculture program. Before that, I was an Editorial Assistant at the Rockefeller University Press, a Summer Resident Assistant at New York University, and I’ve had internships in social media, communications, and public relations for nonprofits in New York City. I earned a BA in Chemistry from New York University.

My writing has appeared or is forthcoming in From The Edge; Minetta Review; Barren Magazine; Heat the Grease, We’re Frying Up Some Poetry; and Lyrical Iowa.
