Saskia Hamilton was widely recognized and respected for her contributions to the realms of poetry, essay writing, research, and education.
The news of her passing has left us devastated and filled with grief. Since the release of her debut poetry collection titled “As for Dream” in 2001, her writing has consistently garnered recognition as a finalist and winner on the esteemed Graywolf Poetry list.
At the time of her passing, Saskia was in the final stages of preparing her latest book, “All Souls,” set to be available for purchase in October. Her words and presence are already sorely missed, yet they will leave behind a lasting legacy for future generations.
During my time as a Lannan Fellow at the Folger Library, Saskia was an invaluable member of the staff, always offering assistance and insight whenever I sought her guidance. I also had the privilege of briefly connecting with her mother, which proved to be a meaningful experience.
