Loretta Diane Walker is the author of five collections of poetry, and her
sixth collection, "Day Begins When Darkness is in Full Bloom," is
forthcoming in 2021. Her most recent title is "Ode to My Mother’s Voice"
(Lamar University Press, 2019). Her third collection, "In This House"
(Bluelight Press, 2015), was named winner of the 2016 Phyllis Wheatley
Book Award. A member of the Texas Institute of Letters, a nine-time
Pushcart Prize nominee and a Best of the Net nominee, she is not only an
award winning poet but a musician who plays her tenor saxophone sometimes,
a daughter navigating a new world, a teacher who still likes her students,
a two-time breast cancer survivor, and an artist who has been humbled and
inspired by a collection of remarkable people. Of her work, Naomi Shihab
Nye writes, “Loretta Diane Walker writes with compassionate wisdom and
insight—her poems restore humanity.”
