How I Write: Hannah Hodgson

Q&A and Reading

Hannah Hodgson is a writer and activist living with a terminal illness. She uses a hospice and has been shielding since February 2020. She has worked with organisations such as BBC arts, Teen Vogue and Grazia magazine. She has won numerous prestigious awards for her writing. Her first full length book 163 Days was published by Seren in March 2022. Hannah also received a Diana Legacy Award (in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales) in 2021. Proving to be a busy year, she also has two further pamphlets publishing in 2022, Queen of Hearts and I always Fall in Love Inside Hospitals.

Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table). And the best part? At the end you get to ask them questions about their words, pick their brains on craft, and learn more about the business of writing.

The reading and Q&A will be delivered via Zoom webinar, so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

I feel much more confident about short stories now! In such a short time I feel I was given such a great overview and the reader/tutor was so generous with their feedback and knowledge.

Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.
