Hollie McNishLive in Bristol
Raise the Bar proudly present Hollie McNish's official 2021 Bristol tour date, with support from former Bristol City Poet Vanessa Kisuule.
Hollie McNish is a full time writer who loves writing poetry. 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. Hollie tours continuously all over the UK and Europe and beyond and is a big fan of online readings – her poetry videos have attracted millions of views worldwide.
Here she will share poems and stories from her latest poetry collections. The event will be followed by a book sale and signing.
Her rhymes have a driving quality, urgent words pinning down fleeting feelings, and her prose is warm and conversational, like speaking to a friend
