Nina Hanz is a German-American writer based in Berlin. In 2020, she graduated from the Royal College of Art’s MA Writing programme where she cultivated her practice around time and place, geology and ecology. Both her prose and poetry deal with unexpected iterations of the ground, from the grit that gets stuck in a clam shell to the gunk that gets stuck under our fingernails. She has read her work at the National Poetry Library, London; Floating University, Berlin and Assembly House, Norwich amongst others. Nina's poetry can be found in places such as Vogue, Daisy World Magazine, Ache Magazine, and Attention anthology. Her first poetry pamphlet Placeholders was published by Bottlecap Press, February 2022 and her second pamphlet Mycoglossia co-writen with Fiona Glen was published by Haverthorn Press, December 2022. She is also the editor of the anthology My Daughter Terra, published by Plaintiff Press, February 2023. Her essays as well as literature and art reviews can be found published online and in print. Nina is currently the Press and Communications Manager at the ChertLüdde gallery in Berlin.
