Hannah’s first book of poetry, LOVE DREAM WITH TELEVISION, came out in September 2018 from Noemi Press. An anthology of contemporary sports literature, Bodies Built for Game, for which Hannah was the associate editor alongside Natalie Diaz, is now out from University of Nebraska Press. She writes and publishes poems (e.g. Denver Quarterly, JUPITER 88, Bat City Review, PEN Poetry Series), reviews & essays (e.g. Prairie Schooner, University of Michigan Press, The Volta), and collaborative writings (e.g. Split Lip, dancing girl press).
