On the Map: Marciela Guerrero 2023


Maricela GUERRERO (poet, writer, teacher; Mexico) is the author of nine poetry collections, most recently  A río revuelto (2022) and El sueño de toda célula (2018), which won her the 2018 Clemencia Isaura Prize; in Robin Myers’ translation, it was published by Cardboard House Press as The Dream of Every Cell  (2022). A fellow of Mexico’s distinguished National System of Art Creators, she publishes widely, often in translation; her creative writing pedagogy centers on eco-poetics and eco-feminism. Her participation was made possible by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the US Department of State.

"On the Map" is a series of interviews with writers while they are in Iowa City, participating in the IWP’s fall residency, produced in association with the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa. This video was made possible by a grant from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.
