heather hughes
still hangs her heart in her native Miami.

She explores bodies and landscapes, in the broadest senses, through speculative poetry.

heather combines her poetic and environmental fascinations with her work as a letterpress printer. She is a studio manager and instructor at Bow & Arrow Press at Harvard University.

Her poetry is supported by a 2021 Artist Fellowship from the Somerville Arts Council. In 2020, heather hosted the first event for Poem Space Reading Series. She is also an editorial associate for Scoundrel Time and has previously been an editorial assistant for AGNI and Quick Fiction.

She never outgrew her science fiction & fantasy obsession. In an alternate universe, she works in disaster recovery.

All her tattoos have wings.
