With Benjamin Zephaniah stating ‘I can’t take my ears off her’ 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. Her collection Nobody Told Me won the Ted Hughes Award, The Scotsman claiming that ‘the world needs this book’. Here, she will be joining us to chat honestly and openly, and read from her latest poetry collections. Expect strong language as she talks fruit and flesh, guilt, sex, politics, death, breasts, transformers and more.
‘She writes with honesty, conviction, humour and love. She points out the absurdities we’ve grown too used to and lets us see the world with fresh eyes’ – Kate Tempest
Steve Nash is a writer, performer and musician, born in Yorkshire and raised on army barracks across the UK and Europe. A widely and internationally published poet, in 2014 Steve won the Saboteur Award for ‘Best Spoken Word Performer’ from a shortlist that included Kate Tempest and Hollie McNish. Steve strongly suspects he may be a superhero after escaping a near-fatal car accident in 2013 and a neurological malfunction that resulted in a coma in 2017. It is not clear yet what his special powers might be.
