Hollie McNish

Spoken Word - Winner 2015

Hollie McNish loves writing poetry. She has published two collections Papers and Cherry Pie and one poetic memoir Nobody Told Me, of which the Scotsman suggested “The world needs this book”, with translations in German and Spanish. In 2014 she became the first poet to perform and record an album Versus at Abbey Road Studios and in 2016 collaborated with the brilliant Dutch Metropole Orkest on a second album. Hollie tours extensively across the UK and worldwide as well as being a big fan of online readings – her poetry videos have attracted millions of views, in particular her pieces relating to immigration and parenthood. She has a background in development economics and migration studies and does readings for organisations as diverse as The Economist, MTV, and UNICEF. In 2016 she won The Ted Hughes Prize for Nobody Told Me and toured a play Offside relating the history of women in UK football, co-written with Sabrina Mahfouz
Plum is her latest poetry collection, relating her thoughts on fruit and society from childhood to her early thirties.
