H.E. Fisher is a multi-genre writer from a beach resort town on Long Island, presently living in the wilderness of Rockland County, fifty minutes north of New York City. She is earning her MFA in Creative Writing at City College of New York. She's also a writing tutor for high school and college students, which means that she spends a lot of time giving students permission to think. Some places her work has appeared in includes Okay Donkey, Pithead Chapel, The Rumpus, JMWW, Tiny Flames Press, and Animal Heart Press's anthology "From the Ashes," among other publications. She's the 2019 recipient of The Stark Poetry Prize in Memory of Raymond Patterson, and was shortlisted for the 2019 Barren Press Poetry Contest. Her lyrical essay, "Ocean: An Autobiography" (Hopper Magazine) was nominated for the Best of the Net.
