HEATHER KING

NEWSLETTER


Welcome! You’ll find here my books, a weekly arts and culture column and a decade’s worth of blog posts.

I also offer writing workshops, coaching and manuscript editing, and talks on a variety of subjects–with an overall thrust toward the promotion of the artistic vocation.

“Desire lines” are the names given by urban planners to what happens when one person’s impulsive shortcut encourages others to follow, creating informal, unmapped channels through a city.

What if, together, we could begin to make new desire lines—for ourselves, for the world?
