Jason Kirkey is graduate student in conservation ecology as well as an author, poet, and the founder of Hiraeth Press. He grew up in the Ipswich River-North Atlantic Coast watershed of Massachusetts. Inspired by the landscapes in which he has lived — the temperate forests and old mountains of New England, the red rocks and high desert of Colorado, Irish hills and sea — his work is permeated with an ecological sensibility. Whether poetry or prose, Jason's words strive toward consonance with the ecosystem. He has written four volumes of poetry, including Estuaries and a nonfiction book, The Salmon in the Spring: The Ecology of Celtic Spirituality. Jason is now working on his second nonfiction book. He lives in Massachusetts.
