Lucy Hannah Ryan is a poet, diarist and aspiring novelist from London.

She has been writing poetry since early childhood, where she would reword nursery rhymes and force family members to pay her for the privilege of hearing them performed (a business model she admires to this day.) She published her first short poem in Haiku Journal #35, in 2015 followed by another in Haiku Journal #37 and her first full-length poem entitled Paresis, inspired by her complicated health and relationship with her body, in Poetry Quarterly later that same year

From there, she has been continuously working as a freelance writer and has been published in numerous other magazines, journals and websites including Vitality Magazine, The Brasillia Review and Half Mystic, for whom she has written poetry for their inaugural and third issues and contributed a guest post to their blog. In addition to this, she has self-published two chapbooks and co-runs the pop culture website luxandlazarus.com. In 2018, her story In the Absence of Moonlight won the London City of Stories competition for Kensington and Chelsea. She is part of the Write Young Things collective.

Currently working in mental health as a support worker, and studying for a degree in English literature, Lucy is focused on the future, sharing her distinct voice with anyone who will care to listen.
