Coming soon to Artizan Gallery, L I V E is a new event series that will challenge and inspire. Featuring everything from musical performance to spoken word with everything from lectures to comedy in between, this new series of events will be defined only by its diversity.

Launching April 15th, we look forward to kicking off the series with a particularly eclectic mix. Today we introduce another of the performers joining for our first event...

Hannah Linden

Hannah Linden

Hannah Linden has been described as a ‘metaphysical memory poet’. Her poetry explores the boundary between the inner and outer landscapes and how the past imprints itself on the present and the present shapes the past. She’s not afraid to go into dark corners or to stand and bask in the rain.

A widely published writer, she has recently appeared in print and digital journals, Magma, The Interpreter’s House, And Other Poems, Lighthouse and Under the Radar, whilst her powerful poem exploring the impact of parental suicide was chosen as part of the 84 anthology.

Recognition for her work has included winning the Cheltenham Festival Compound Poetry Competition 2015 for collaborative work with Gram Joel Davies; Highly Commended in the Prole Laureate Competition 2015; and longlisted for The Rialto Nature Poetry Competition 2018.

Hannah reads and performs widely at festival and venues including Cheltenham Festival, Bristol Lyra, Torbay and Swindon and was also part of Poetry Pram which took poetry to Beautiful Days Festival 2018. She also recently headlined at the Phoenix Arts Centre, Exeter with a reading exploring male mental health.

‘one of the most powerful poetry readings I've seen in Plymouth this year.’

Nick Ingram on her reading as part of the #metoo event in Plymouth in March 2018 hosted by Wonderzoo and Feminist Fusion.

‘[her] set was incredible - so courageous and moving, so necessary (especially for the young men in the audience) and dazzling use of language. I loved it’

Melanie Branton on her reading at Bristol Lyra Poetry Festival
