BIO

 

HEATHERLIE ALLISON, a Pacific Northwest/Bay Area-based writer, artist, and educator, works with a strategically altar(ed) approach to reading, writing, and art-making. She curates a part of this practice at thealtaredslate.com. Having formally studied experimental writing processes, literature, voice, and pedagogy, she once earned degrees from both the CalArts School of Critical Studies (MFA) and Naropa University’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics (BA). Alongside these credentials, she credits: the creatures, the spirits, and the trees. 

At present, HEATHERLIE ALLISON is writing a collection of short stories adjacent to a novel-length project, both forms written under the lens of the mystic, intersecting the redemptive themes of motherhood, of loss, and of reconciliation. An illustrated chapbook of selected works is forthcoming, a publishing collaboration between The Altar(ed) Slate, Snakeroot Works, and In Solace Publishing
