Caridad Moro is the author of Visionware. She is the recipient of an Elizabeth George Foundation Grant and a Florida Individual Artist Fellowship in poetry. Her poems and essays have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net and have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies. She is the Associate Editor for the daily online literary journal, SWWIM Every Day. In Grabbed: Poets & Writers on Sexual Assault, Empowerment & Healing (Beacon Press) Moro collaborated with Elisa Albo, Richard Blanco, and Nikki Moustaki. Grabbed is a gender-inclusive anthology of poetry and prose that addresses the physical and psychological act of being “grabbed,” or in any way assaulted. The #MeToo movement, the infamous Access Hollywood tape, and the depraved and hypocritical actions of celebrities, politicians, CEOs, and other powerful people have caused people all over the nation to speak out in outrage. The editors asked writers and poets — including Rita Dove, Jericho Brown, Eileen Miles, Ana Menendez and Sapphire, as well as some newer voices —to add to the conversation about what being “grabbed” means to them. What they received are often searing, heart-rending works, ranging in topic from sexual misconduct to racial injustice, from an unwanted caress to rape, expressed in powerful, beautifully crafted prose and poetry.
