Last year I was privileged to see Jesse Blackadder speak on an author panel at a festival. She was insightful, warm, funny, passionate, and so, so interesting. I’m so saddened to hear of her passing, and my heart goes out to the many people who will be feeling her loss.

The Aus writing community is grieving for Jesse Blackadder tonight. I never had the good fortune to meet her but from reading all your comments it’s easy to see how loved she was, and I’m so sorry for your loss.


So sad to hear this. I met her in London when I was a new writer – her generosity of spirit, her kindness and warmth, not to mention all the French champagne we drank – will stay with me forever. Vale.
