Hannah Meiklejohn…

553004_326842397438257_251360029_nThis blog began as a space for some of my creative writing.  It hasn’t quite worked out that way…

Being a bit shy about sharing my original poems or works of fiction, the blog has turned into a bit of a dumping ground for book reviews, anecdotes of working in a library, comments on grammar, and anything else remotely linked to books, reading, literature, book illustration and book cover design.

As for me, I am interested in exploring the relationship between text and image.  I have a special interest in philosophy and illustration in children’s literature, comics and graphic novels.

My degree is in history and after that I decided to take a diploma in creative writing and literature, where I focused on philosophy in children’s literature.  I am working towards a Masters in Philosophy at the moment which I should finish in January 2015 (wish me luck!).

  1. I also like all of the forms of writing you mentioned, I really enjoy writing essays as well, they can be both fun and interesting. I look forward to taking a look at your blog.

  2. Thanks for your comments both. Brigitte, I love how you sum it up with a few key words – Libraries, books, creative writing courses, history, dog-walking/lovin’ this should be my new gravitar hovercard statement! 😉

  3. My dream job! The Goodreads account is a good idea. I just signed up myself. Well worth it, I prefer to know what librarians think anyway. So what that I’m biased!

    • Hello AWI! Thanks for the follow. I have popped along to your blog to follow too 🙂

      I keep meaning to check out Goodreads. A few others have suggested it to me. It’s one of the many thing I’ve yet to get around to. I’ll get there one day 😉

  5. Hi Hannah,

    As I was searching for 20th Century Children Literature in Lake District, I’ve came across your name and your blog.

    I was wondering if you could actually gave a talk to a group of students from Singapore with regards to those Children Literatures at Lake District.

    Kindly contact me through my email and let’s see what can be done from there.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Greg.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment. You’ll notice that I spend more time talking about writing that actually writing, but hey, I’ll get there eventually!

      You have an awesome blog. Love your dogs! Keep it up 🙂

  7. I too love all different forms of writing. You are so blessed to work in a library…I would love that!

  8. Hannah,

    Have you used and discussed the analysis of size, location, or light in picturebooks you could share?
