PREVIEW - Hannah Stone and Patrick Lodge

Finding your 'selves' - poetry and a sense of home

Join in the journey with Hannah Stone and Patrick Lodge, who aren't sure where they belong but know the way to find out is to travel.  Hannah will be introducing her new collection, Missing Miles.

Hannah holds an MA in Creative Writing from Leeds Trinity University and is co-editor of the poetry ezine Algebra of Owls. She won the Yorkshire Poetry Prize in the Poetry Business Book and Pamphlet Competition when judged by Billy Collins. Her first solo collection, Lodestone, was published by Stairwell Books in 2016 and Missing Miles is published June 2017 by Indigo Dreams Publishing as a prize for being a winner in the Geoff Stevens Memorial Competition.


Patrick was born in Wales, lives in Yorkshire and travels on an Irish passport. His poetry has been published widely in journals and magazines, including EnvoiInk, Sweat & TearsMediterranean PoetryRevival, and The Stare’s Nest, and has been translated into Vietnamese for Van Viet. He was the winner of the 2015 Blackwater International Poetry Competition. His first collection An Anniversary of Flight was published by Valley Press in October 2013. His second, Shennanigans, followed in April 2016.


This is one of Headingley LitFest's 'Between the Lines' events. More to come.
