Heather Woods is the author of Light Bearing (Spuyten Duyvil 2015) and the forthcoming épopée: (w)hole food(s). Her work was featured in the anthology: Resist Much Obey Little: Inaugural Poems of the Resistance (Dispatches Editions). By day, she teaches writing to students of all ages; by dawn, she selects and edits books for publication. She served as a member of Kelsey St Press in Berkeley and founded Persimmons literary magazine at Kenyon College. There she studied poetry, and in the San Francisco Bay Area, where four generations of her matrilineal ancestors settled. Seeking sustainable simplicity, Heather moved across the wide country to a wild woodland jutting off the Northern Atlantic Coast.
