The poems of DWELLING investigate, musically and with “bended”
syntax, the issue of form—in body, home, and poem. They ask questions
like: What makes a space a home? Is it shape and architectural
elements, the experiences and interactions that transpire there, the
objects contained in, or the language ascribed to it? Can one
separate recollections from the physical spaces in which they
occurred? Is a “home” just a backdrop for events or is it another
body, inside which is found the tangible and intangible stuff of
self, a body to be read like a text?

Born and raised in the Midwest, Heather C. Akerberg resides in Omaha,
Neb. She has taught English Composition, Creative Writing and
Bookmaking, as well as Cognitive Skills. Heather is a freelance
writer and sustainable agriculture enthusiast. She has an M.F.A. in
Creative Writing from Brown University and a B.A from the Jack
Kerouac School at Naropa University. Her poetry has appeared in
Bombay Gin, Aufgabe, untitled and The Nebraska Review. Dwelling is
her first book.
