Hannah Vincent

Hannah has been teaching Creative Writing for the past seven years. She studied Drama and English at UEA and completed Kingston University's MA in Creative Writing in 2012. Her debut novel Alarm Girl is published by Myriad. Her radio play Come to Grief won 'Best Adaptation' at the 2015 BBC Audio Awards.

Approach to Teaching: My interest lies in helping writers find their unique voice and my teaching style is practical and supportive. As a practising writer, I appreciate the task facing Creative Writing students as I too am engaged in the task of finding the 'right' words and getting them in the most satisfying order.

Inspiration: My work is mostly inspired by the human tendency to speak to others without saying what we might want to say. This tension informs both my prose and my drama writing.
