Hannah’s first poetry collection Chick (Bloodaxe, 2013) won the Michael Murphy Memorial Award for Best First Collection. In September 2014, she was named as one of 20 Next Generation poets. 

Hannah’s father was Jamaican-Chinese, so many of her humane, accessible and honest poems explore race, belonging and identity.

Her new collection The Kids (Bloodaxe) is a Poetry Book Society Choice. She’ll be reading from The Kids and will be in conversation with Maitreyabandhu about poetry, race and an Ilford childhood. We’ll also be having live jazz!
