heather hughes
still, siempre, hangs her heart in Miami, where she was born and raised.

She explores disaster and the porousness of bodies and landscapes through speculative, fragmented lyric poetry.

heather combines her poetic and environmental fascinations with her work as a letterpress printer. She is a studio manager and instructor at the student-founded Bow & Arrow Press at Adams House, Harvard University, where she carries on the tradition of community-driven letterpress.

Her poetry was supported by a 2021 Artist Fellowship from the Somerville Arts Council. She has served as an editorial associate for Scoundrel Time, AGNI, and Quick Fiction.

She never outgrew her science fiction & fantasy obsession.

All her tattoos have wings.
