About Me



Hannah Lavery’s poetry sings; her words demand to be heard with their tough delicacy, their intimacy, their hypnotic rhythms and the knowledge she’s taking you somewhere you’ve never quite been before. Go with her – you’ll be glad you did.
-Catherine Simpson, author of Truestory  


Hannah Lavery lives in Dunbar with her husband and their three children, a former Secondary English Teacher, she has been a freelance writer since 2013, with residences with The Scottish Book Trust, The Whole Works in Edinburgh and the Bleachingfield Centre in Dunbar.
