Hollie McNish is a published UK poet based between London, Cambridge and Glasgow. She has two previous poetry collections – Cherry Pie and Papers and an album, Versus, which made her the first poet to record at Abbey Road Studios, London.
In February 2016, Blackfriars published her memoir of poetry and parenthood, Nobody Told Me, with which she won the Ted Hughes award. Her latest poetry collection, Plum, is published by Picador.
Plum, Hollie’s debut for Picador Poetry, is a wise, sometimes rude and piercingly candid account of her memories from childhood to attempted adulthood. This is a book about growing up, about flesh, fruit, friendships, work and play - and the urgent need to find a voice for the poems that will somehow do the whole glorious riot of it justice.
