Sanna Hartnor

Sweden


Sanna Hartnor, born 1986, lives and works in Malmö. Apart from being a poet, she currently works as a writer and with music and stage performances. Her first poems were published in the anthology Mot denna sol: Blå Blixt (Towards this Sun: Blue Flash) – and the following year she made her debut with Hamnen (The Harbour). The collection is a tragic and humorous piece of work situated in the specific context of Malmö – an old working class city, then famous for its shipyard, now gentrified and transformed beyond recognition.

 

2015 Hamnen was nominated to the Katapult Prize, the Swedish writers union award for the best debut of the year
