She has started to make theatre, namely off a stage.
The second show, a collaboration with Chris Thorpe called ‘The Oh Fuck Moment’ was awarded a Fringe First 2011.
She also works as an arts project manager, having worked
in the education team at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival and currently working for live literature development organisation Apples and Snakes, runs writing workshops in schools and community groups and programmes poetry events.
A pamphlet of performance pieces was published by Nasty Little Press 2010 http://www.nastylittlepress.org/people/hannah-jane-walker/
Her poems are full of sharp edges and unexpected angles as well as warmth and empathy for her fellow humans.
They are funny and they’re simple and they’re complicated and they don’t know right from wrong sometimes.
Some things she has contributed to recently:
Some poems published in an excellent anthology called ‘Adventures in Form’ by Penned in the Margins http://www.pennedinthemargins.co.uk/index.php/2012/02/adventures-in-form/
Had a poem turned in to a mix tape for an exhibition by Annexe Magazine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdEwayz6iLc&feature=youtu.be
