As in Jessie Lendennie’s previous collection, Daughter and Other Poems, the poems in Walking Here are connected in perception and spirit. Like any art that means anything, these poems arise out of pain, honouring it, paying tribute. The pain that comes with knowledge of the truth of the world; its loss, its discovery; shades, shadows and light.

Jessie Lendennie is the co-founder and Managing Director of Salmon Poetry. Born in Arkansas, USA, after years of travel she settled in Ireland in 1981. Her previous publications include a book-length prose poem, Daughter (1988), reprinted as Daughter and Other Poems in 2001. Her work has appeared widely in anthologies such as Irish Poetry Now: Other Voices and The White Page / An Bhileog Bhan: Twentieth-Century Irish Women Poets, edited by Joan McBreen. She has compiled and edited Salmon: A Journey in Poetry, 1981-2007, Poetry: Reading it, Writing It, Publishing It and Dogs Singing: A Tribute Anthology. She is currently working on a memoir, To Dance Beneath the Diamond Sky.
