Hannah was awarded Highly Commended in this prestigious competition. The High Sherriff’s Cheshire Prize for Literature, with prize money of almost £3,000, is one of the region’s major literary events. At the prizegiving ceremony on Tuesday 4th December, Hannah was awarded with her prize by guest speaker Lloyd Grossman, and William Lees-Jones, the High Sheriff of Cheshire.
Hannah says her studies at Chester have played a huge part in the development of her writing: "Studying Creative Writing at University has helped my writing beyond measure; not only from a technical perspective, but my confidence in my skills too. Getting a Highly Commended from the Cheshire Prize this year has been utterly unbelievable, especially since this time last year I wouldn't even have dreamed of entering!"
