She received her academic education at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and her actual education through grass-roots organizing with women in the army-base town of Fayetteville, North Carolina, and through teaching at historically Black universities. For five years she was the editor of the editorial collective ofFeminary: A Feminist Journal for the South. Emphasizing Lesbian Visions. Together with Elly Burkin and Barbara Smith, she co-authored Yours in Struggle. Three Feminist Perspectives on Anti-Semitism and Racism (Firebrand Books). She has published three books of poetry, The Sound on One Fork (Night Heron Press), We Say We Love Each Other (Spinsters/Aunt Lute & Firebrand Books), and Crime Against Nature (Firebrand Books). In 1989. Crime Against Nature, on Pratt's relationship to her two sons as a lesbian mother, was chosen as the Lamont Poetry Selection by the Academy of American Poets; this is an annual award given for the best second full-length book of poetry by a U.S. Author. The judges said of the book, Pratt tells a moving story of loss and recuperation, discovering linkages between her own disenfranchisement and the condition of other minorities. She makes it plain, in this masterful sequence of poems, that the real crime against nature is violence and oppression." In 1991, Crime Against Nature was given the American Library Association Gay and Lesbian Book Award for Literature, it was also nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. Pratt has been granted a Creative Writing Fellowship in Poetry by the National Endowment for the Arts.

These three writers were selected because of their experience "as a target of right-wind and fundamentalist forces during the recent attacks on the National Endowment for the Arts." At present Pratt lives in the New York City metropolitan area in Jersey City, New Jersey, and teaches Women's Studies, Lesbian/Gay Studies, and Creative Writing as part of the Graduate Faculty of The Union Institute, a non-residential alternative university.
