Heather Cameron

Heather Cameron is a poet with a particular interest in autopathography and elegy. Her work as a healthcare professional as well as her experiences with cancer has led her to write poetry exploring a wide range of themes centred around loss and grief. She has recently completed a collection of poetry as part of her creative arts PhD at Deakin University, Victoria, Australia.
Heather has lived on the coast in Victoria, Australia, for nearly the same number of decades that she lived in her birth country of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Her career has spanned 35 years in the healthcare and education sectors in both countries. She currently lives with her two adult sons and two cats, who despite not earning an income, are in charge of the household.
