Next Gen Poet, Hannah Lowe - "Poetry Is The First Place I Claimed A Mixed Race Identity"



After Hannah Lowe was our guest poet at Keats House Poets Forum last month, I got to speak with her in a Holloway Road cafe. Hannah's first collection 'Chick' is, as she calls it "poetry of memory". Exploring her relationship with her Chinese-Jamaican father while growing up in Britain.  I have recommended this book to a number of people who have never read a poetry collection.
Have a listen to her poem, 'IN' and what she had to say about the "Black British Poetic"
