I’m supporting my pal Hollie McNish at Diss Corn Hall. I’ll do about 40 mins, Hollie an hour or so. Blurb below:
With Emma Watson holding her up as one of the poets whose books she ‘devoured in single sittings’ and Kate Tempest describing her poetry as ‘welcoming, galvanising and beautiful’, Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose readings are not to be missed. She has garnered over ten million YouTube views for her online poetry readings 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 read from and chat about her latest poetry collections.
Expect strong language.
Plus Luke Wright
“Poet Luke Wright doesn’t mince his words. His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour. They are also peppered with brilliantly smart observations. You will leave his show brimming with energy, heart pounding and brain whirring.” Guardian
