Hollie McNish visits POETAS Festival
Hollie McNish loves writing poetry. This is a piece of luck not just for POETAS Festival, but for the whole world. She has published two collections Papers and Cherry Pie and one poetic memoir Nobody Told Me, of which the Scotsman suggested “The world needs this book” and for which she won the Ted Hughes Award. In 2016 she co-wrote a play Offside relating the two hundred year history of UK women’s football. Hollie tours continuously across the UK and is a big fan of online readings – her poetry videos have attracted millions of views worldwide. She has a keen interest in migration, infant health and language learning. Thanks to an agreement with the British Council she’ll be visiting Madrid to take part in this year’s edition of POETAS.
