The Museum of Motherhood Art Annex in St. Petersburg, Florida welcomes Hannah Brockbank in October, 2017.
Hannah Brockbank is joint winner of the 2016 Kate Betts Award. Publications featuring her work include Hallelujah for 50ft Women Anthology (Bloodaxe), A Way through the Woods Anthology(Binsted Arts), Full Moon & Foxglove Anthology (Three Drops Press), The London Magazine, Envoi, and When Women Waken Journal. Her poems also featured in the Chalk Poets Anthology as part of the 2016 Winchester Poetry Festival. She has also written feature essays for Thresholds International Short Story Forum. Her first pamphlet, Bloodlines, is due for publication by Indigo Dreams Publishing in 2017. She is studying for a Ph.D at the University of Chichester.
During her residency at M.O.M, Hannah will have access to the Andrea O’Reilly Library and Reading Room, the complete works of Demeter Press, and the latest publications on mothering and motherhood. She will respond creatively to M.O.M’s varied galleries and exhibits which incorporate a range of mothering concepts, and will inspire her to embody her own mothering experience through poetry. Creative work written as a result of her residency at M.O.M, will form part of her Ph.D, which includes writing a publishable book length collection of new matrifocal poems. We welcome Hannah for two weeks beginning the third week of October.
