Hannah Hodgson

I'm 21 years old, a poet, blogger and palliative care patient. I give talks in schools, festivals and at corporate events about disability issues and adapt what I talk about e.g. in schools I talk about working hard to get a career that you enjoy. In a corporate setting I talk about the importance of physical accessibility and access schemes to the workplace. If you would like to know more, please do email me at: hannahwritesablog (@!) gmail.com . My first poetry pamphlet is called 'Dear Body' and was published by Wayleave Press in March 2018. I am also available to be booked for poetry readings.
