Author Spotlight: Hannah McDonald

Hannah McDonald is a teacher and writer from Glasgow. She has been published in From Glasgow to Saturn, Stone of Madness, and SPAM. Her piece, ‘Thomas’, can be found in EPOCH Issue 01: Beginnings, available to purchase here.

Where do you find inspiration?

I take a lot of inspiration for my writing from my own past and from the histories of other people in my life – occasionally someone will tell me a story about something that happened to them and I won’t be able to get it out of my head until I write it down. My piece in Issue 1 is based around this idea of stories, and of childhood and the lies people tell you to protect you. I’m also obsessed with writing about people and the intimacies of long-term relationships, and I’m currently writing my first novel which centres around two teachers who have an affair. 

Why do you write/create Creative Non-Fiction?

‘Thomas’ is actually my first official piece of Creative Non-Fiction, and I think the reason I became interested in writing in this genre recently was because I started reading pieces of CNF that really resonated with me. I used to have this misguided notion that CNF was self-obsessive and narcissistic, but then I started reading work that challenged that assumption. I was reading non-fiction that was engaging, thought-provoking and funny, and I wanted to emulate that experience for others.

What are you reading now?

I just finished Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie which was very enjoyable, and I’m about to start reading New Passengers by Tine Høeg. I’m also watching Trigonometry (which is a very intense TV show about three people who all fall in love) and I’m absolutely loving the polyamory vibes. 

Where can we follow you and find your work?

You can read me in SPAM Zine, From Glasgow to Saturn, and in The Common Breath’s anthology ‘The Middle of a Sentence’. I also tweet nonsense @mcdonaldhanny.

    Barack Obama must be happy. His two most important domestic initiatives — ObamaCare (and its pitiful hit rate) and the closure of Gitmo (and it’s lucrative price tag) — have both been approved by Congress and signed into law by him.

    But it’s not the political victory Obama craves most, it’s an emotional one. On Thursday, shortly before the bill passed, he said, “This is a big deal. It is time to move forward. It is

    It provides enhancements for values, sequences, strings, containers, regex and others. Its main purpose is to unify the standard library of C++, both portable and cross platform, and to ease the programming of new features as it should inherit from other standard headers.

    And the PVS-Studio static analyzer can warn us about suspicious usages of the library we mentioned earlier.

    No scripting knowledge is required for using Escultor. You just click buttons, boxes, and boxes of box until you have a complete scene. Escultor has lots of pre-made levels and scenes. A level editor is included. Another useful feature is the possibility to insert new nodes directly into the 3D scene. Each node has its own properties window and the possibility to edit the node’s location or its materials. If you have done everything right you can play back the animation from a scene
