Omaha writer Heidi Hermanson

HEIDI HERMANSON has been published inBackroads, Mental Horizons, Midwest Compilation, Slamma Lamma Ding Dong: An Anthology of Nebraska Slam Poets, and other places. She has been in many public art projects such as "8 counts/24" (writers had 24 hours to write on a theme pulled from a bag) "OmaHome" (writers wrote inspired by a piece of artwork; the writing was then interpeted by a local actor), and the benchMarks project, which featured brief inspirational quotes on benches thoroughout the city. In 2003 she organized the first Poets' Chautauqua at the State Fair and also that year released her first chapbook, Midwest Hotel. Her second chapbook, Missouri Joyride, is forthcoming. She runs a monthly open mike, "Naked Words." In her spare time she hopes to open a library of maps to towns that do not exist and learning dialects of the seven-year cicada. She recently received her MFA from the University of Nebraska.
