Karen Hannah is originally from Santa Maria, California. She has lived in Philadelphia, where she received her MA in Creative Writing and Literature from Temple University, and has recently returned from Seoul, South Korea, where she worked as an editor for nearly three years, making curricula books and working on a manuscript entitled when you and I are understood. She's now happily residing back in the land of San Francisco, after having sadly left it seven years ago. She is excited to begin taking letterpress classes for a documentary she wants to make on existing letterpresses in the United States, and to brave biking up as many hills as possible. Her work can be found in 2008 Anthology of Younger Poets, vol.1 of the online journal zbzz, Fulcrum Annual, Small Brushes, and Thought Magazine.
