Claudia Arevalo was born in 1967 in Bogota, Colombia. She holds a B.A. in Modern Languages from Los Andes University and an M.F.A. in Nonfiction writing from Columbia University. She speaks English, Spanish, Italian and French. She has also started learning German. In 1993, she made her literary debut as a writer with the publication of her children’s book “The Chicken Tree” published by DG A&C Editores. Claudia has written three books “Body Parts” edited by her daughter Maria Jose Roa and self-published in 2022, “Green Mangoes with Salt” and “End of Life Love” which will be self-published in 2024. Her pieces are short stories that read like poems, poems that read like short stories. Fragmentary memoirs. She is currently working on a new piece titled “Feline obsessions”, “A tormented soapoperish latino drama”, “Purgatorio”, and a photo project titled “Sleeping Beauties”. Claudia Jane also works as a freelance translator and a creative writing professor. She’s the proud mother of Ana Maria, Maria Jose, Juan Pablo and Sophia Isabella, her most cherished creations. The latest member added to her tribe is Elena, her first grandkid.

Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month.

Tupelo Press provides the canvas; I bring my words, accompanied by a cohort of fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, all ours to edit and submit as we wish. 30/30 poems have been taken by over 200 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

Every dollar gives me confidence to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Give today!
