Hollie is a poet and spoken word artist and was UK Slam poetry champion in 2009.
Videos of her poems have repeatedly gone viral, getting over 1 million YouTube views in
just over a week!

With fans from Emma Watson to Pink and Benjamin Zephaniah, the Ted Hughes Award
winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose readings are not to be missed.

Hollie is based between Cambridge and Glasgow. She has published three poetry
collections - Papers, Cherry Pie and Plum, and one poetic memoir on politics and
parenthood, Nobody Told Me, of which the Scotsman suggested "The world needs this
book" and for which she won the Ted Hughes Award. She was also the first poet ever to
record at London's famed Abbey Road Studios.

"Her rhymes have a driving quality, urgent words pinning down fleeting feelings" - Observer

"It's a moving and profoundly personal account. Yet at the same time, Nobody Told Me offers
an insight into the shared, unspoken experiences of many mothers." - The Skinny

Venue supported by Moat Brae National Centre for Children's Literature.
