Born in Mount Vernon, Ohio, October 26, 1946, the daughter of Oliver Duane Forman and Helen Ransom Forman, Dew grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where her father set up his medical practice. She also spent a great deal of her childhood in Gambier, Ohio, where she visited and occasionally lived with her maternal grandparents, Robb Reavill and John Crowe Ransom. During that time she found herself surrounded by a wide range of poets and writers connected with the Kenyon Review, or who were friends, colleagues, or former students of her grandfather's. Her godfather was Robert Penn Warren, who was a close friend of the family's.

She attended Louisiana State University. but did not graduate. In 1968, she married Charles B. Dew. The couple moved to Columbia, Missouri, in 1969, where Charles taught history at the University of Missouri at Columbia. They have two sons, Charles Stephen, born in 1971, and John Forman, born in 1973. The family moved to Williamstown, Massachusetts, in 1977, where Charles B. Dew is now the Ephraim Williams Professor of American History at Williams College.

Robb Forman Dew's first novel, Dale Loves Sophie to Death, was published in 1981 and won the National Book Award in 1982. She has taught at the Iowa Writer's Workshop, and she has received a Guggenheim fellowship and was awarded an honorary degree by Kenyon College in 2007.
