Hollie McNish has been postponed until Saturday 3 October. All bookers have been contacted with more information. If you have a ticket for this event but have not heard from us yet, please click here.

Welcome back to Storyhouse. We put customer safety at the top of everything we do, however at this time that means a little more than making sure you don’t get struck inadvertently by an actor! It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering whilst inside the building, except when eating or drinking. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here.

With fans ranging from Emma Watson, Pink and Benjamin Zephaniah, Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose readings are not to be missed. She has garnered millions of YouTube views for her online poetry readings and was the first poet to record at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.

Here, she will join us to read from and chat about her latest poetry collections. Books will be available to purchase at the event. There will be a book signing afterwards.
Expect strong language.

Hollie McNish is a poet 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. In 2017 Nobody Told Me was translated into German, French and Spanish and released in the USA. In 2016 she co-wrote a play Offside with Sabrina Mahfouz, relating the two hundred year history of UK women’s football. Later this year, she will be adapting Antigone for Storyhouse’s Season 11. She has written a few select commissions including subjects such as: orgasm inequality for Durex; a mother’s body for Dove UK; various for The Economist, War Whores – a history of sex work in World War One for the 14-18 / Roundhouse LDN partnership.

– Kate Tempest

“Her rhymes have a driving quality, urgent words pinning down fleeting feelings.”
– The Observer
