Hollie McNish returns to ffresh to perform poems, chat honestly and openly and read from her latest poetry collections.
Hollie will also be joined by celebrated Welsh writer, poet and performer, Clare Potter who has a huge passion for working in schools and on community projects with other artists.
With Benjamin Zephaniah stating ‘I can’t take my ears off her’, Kate Tempest describing her poetry as ‘welcoming, galvanising and beautiful’ and fans ranging from Emma Watson, Robin Ince, Pink and Tim Minchin, Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose readings are not to be missed.
She is an Arts Foundation Fellow in Spoken Word, has garnered over ten million YouTube views for her online poetry performances and was the first poet to record at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.
Her collection, Nobody Told Me, for which she won the Ted Hughes award and for which The Scotsman claimed ‘The world needs this book’, has been translated into French, Spanish and German.
Here, she will be joining us to perform poems, read from and chat honestly and openly from her latest poetry collections.
Expect strong language as she talks fruit and flesh, guilt, sex, politics, death, breasts, transformers and more.
Books will be available to purchase at the event and there's a book signing afterwards.
