Heather Swan is the author of Where Honeybees Thrive: Stories from the Field which won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award in 2018. The book reflects her own background in art, poetry, beekeeping, and environmental studies and celebrates the work of beekeepers, entomologists, farmers, artists and other advocates as they work to support healthy pollinator populations.

She earned her MFA in poetry and PhD in Literary and Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she now teaches writing and environmental literature.
