Heather Truett spent a period of time writing speeches and fundraising letters for a state senator while living in Tupelo, Mississippi. One of the speeches was quoted in the local newspaper, The Daily Journal, and one of the speeches was delivered in Washington DC at a national conference on education.
Heather Truett has been writing for Middle Places for three years. Middle Places is a blog aimed at Christian women. She has written on various topics, including marriage, parenting, mental health issues, and facing periods of doubt and disbelief. Her most popular posts last year included an essay on living as a pastor's wife while still being your own person.
Heather Truett used to write blog posts for products through a service called Pay Per Post. Currently, she blogs for Middle Places, a website targeting Christian women. She wrote a very popular series of posts on the Twelve Steps of AA, applying those steps to everyday life. She often writes about doubt and cynicism within the realms of faith and religion.
Heather Truett has participated in Twitter "poetry parties" through TweetSpeak Poetry. Poets from all over the globe gather on Twitter from time to time and create poetry together. One person is in charge of sharing "prompts." The poets are inspired by one another, sharing lines and images for a solid hour. After the party, an editor gathers all of the tweets and begins sorting them, rearranging them, and forming poems from the chaos. A poem Heather composed at one of these parties appeared in full on the TweetSpeak website.
Through her involvement with the Middle Places blog, Heather was offered a place on the social media team. Two days a week, she is responsible for content in the closed community group for Middle Places readers. Before the closed group existed, she provided two days of content for the main Middle Places page on Facebook. These posts included summaries of blog content, quotes fitting the day's theme, graphics created by herself and others, and sometimes poetry or questions to prompt thought.
