Hollie McNish

Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose live readings are not to be missed. Expect strong language and adult content ribbon wrapped in carefully and caringly sculpted poetry as Hollie reads from and chats about her much anticipated new collection: Slug...and other things I’ve been told to hate. She has published three poetry collections Papers, Cherry Pie, Plum, one play Offside and two poetic memoirs, Slug and Nobody Told Me, of which the Scotsman suggested “The world needs this book” and for which she won the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry. She was the first poet to record at Abbey Road Studios.

 Her poems have been translated into French, German, Spanish, Hungarian, Polish and Japanese and she has performed them worldwide alongside the likes of Irvine Welsh, Kae Tempest, Jackie Kay, Helen Pankhurst and Young Fathers. Her re-translation of Sophocles’ ‘Antigone’ was published in October 2021. As well as live readings, Hollie is a big fan of online accessibility – her poetry videos have attracted millions of viewings worldwide.
