About Me

When Heather Foster says “you” in her poems, she means Dwight Yoakam. She lives on a farm in west Tennessee with her husband, two sons, and a whole lot of chickens. Her poems and stories are featured or forthcoming in PANK, Anderbo, Monkeybicycle, Metazen, South Dakota Review, and Mead: The Magazine of Literature & Libations.

Why do you write?

I understand the world through poems and stories. I love the feeling I get when I read a great piece, something in which words make beautiful music together and communicate some human truth all at the same time. As a writer, I strive to pass that feeling along to others.

Any favorite authors? Books?

I love writers and poets whose work is sonically pleasing to me. I have to be able to read it out loud. On top of that, it better show me something I didn't know or rip an everyday subject wide open.

Favorite poets: Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, James Wright, Carrie Jerrell, Erica Dawson, Rachel Mennies, Elizabeth Bishop.

Favorite fiction writers: Vladimir Nabokov, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, Richard Bausch, Stephen Graham Jones, Joyce Carol Oates, Annie Proulx.
