Here’s Hannah, the third and final conductor on our ship of dreams. Also, she’s a Best New Poet. Just saying.
Hello Broad! peeps, my name is Hannah! I think I will put an exclamation point after my name, just like Broad! does… perhaps this is not a sustainable goal…
To echo the sentiments of Heather, Brittany, and T.R. , it is my hope to do everything in my power to encourage women’s art and writing, and this seemed like a fabulous venue and opportunity for me to do that. I really believe that it is important to encourage and highlight quality art from a diverse group of people, and it’s become increasingly more obvious to me that our world is a little lacking in that –particularly the world of publishing.
I live outside of Boston with my wife Melissa and we are busy getting ready for the birth of our first child! Such exciting stuff! I also teach writing at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, and I’m working on a book of poems about the vice presidents of the United States. It’s an exciting project, but it’s been taking me a long time to complete. Poetry is one of my favorite things in the world, along with my wife, my family, my teddy bear, Reese’s peanut butter cups (fresh… stale ones are gross), and being with friends. I also believe in the Oxford comma and smiling as much as possible. If you want to know more about me, don’t be afraid to ask; I won’t bite!
I’m excited to be able to work with the amazing women at Broad! and looking forward to getting things rollin’.
