After graduating from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, she returned to Boston and began performing regularly in 2014. She has been a featured performer at several events and venues throughout Boston and Cambridge, including If You Can Feel It, You Can Speak It, Stone Soup and the Art & Noise exposition. She performed and spoken at Boston University’s Urban Engagement forum for incoming students in 2015. She was a speaker and performer on the Capable Poets forum at the 2015 Massachusetts Poetry Festival and her work has been published in Oddball Magazine and Stone’s Throw. She is a member of the collective Society of Urban Poetry, a group that strives to produce and support both written and performance poetry. SOUP is particularly focused on poetry that acts as a vehicle for discourse and education on matters such as identity, community and social justice. Hannah believes that poetry gives voice to closed throats, and sees it as a life-saving force for writer/performer and reader/listener alike. Hannah is now living in Boston, performing and teaching.
