Ana Fores-Tamayo

Ana M. Fores-Tamayo advocates for marginalized refugee families from Mexico and Central America. Working with asylum seekers is heart wrenching, yet satisfying, she states.

Her labor has eased her own sense of displacement, being a child refugee, always trying to find home. In parallel, poetry is her escape. She has published in The Raving Press Books, the Laurel Review, Indolent Books Press and many other anthologies, journals, and art fairs. Her poetry in translation and photography have been featured at home and abroad too.

Writing is a catharsis from the cruelty yet ecstasy of her work, she claims. Through it, she keeps tilting at windmills.
