Hollie McNish

Literature at Storyhouse Running from
Next event: Saturday 3 October at 7.30pm
  • £12.50
  • Storyhouse Theatre

The government have advised that, whilst stopping short of forcing theatres and cinemas to close, people should stay away, and so Storyhouse will be temporarily closed from Tuesday 17 March. We are not yet sure how long this will be for, but this does affect a number of events, shows and screenings.

Hollie McNish has been postponed until Saturday 3 October. We will be contacting all bookers as soon as possible with your options.
If you have not heard from us by midnight on Friday 20 March, please click here.

We are humbled by the support of our staff, volunteers and wider community and thank you for your patience as we work through each event and contact all customers. There is no need to get in touch with us.

Remember to stay safe and look after each other.

 

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

“Wonderful.”
– Davina McCall
