Hollie McNish: Slug Book Tour 
plus support by Michael Pedersen​

 

About the Show 

Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose live readings are not to be missed. Expect strong language and adult content ribbon wrapped in carefully and caringly sculpted poetry as Hollie reads from and chats about her much anticipated new collection: Slug...and other things i’ve been told to hate. 

 

“One of the best poets we have”. – Matt Haig 

“like Pam Ayres on acid” – Lemn Sissay 

“Her writing is sublime” – Ellie Taylor 

“Gorgeous Fingering Poems” – Bryony Gordon 

“Stellar” - Vanessa Kisuule 

“Mad craic” – Ray Lawlor, twitter 

“Rubbish” – Ellie Wheeler, The Telegraph 

“I like some poetry but not really yours” – Hollie’s daughter 

 

About Slug...and other things i’ve been told to hate 

From Finnish mermaids and soppy otters to Kellogg's anti-masturbation pants, Slug is a book that holds a mirror up to the world, past and present, through Hollie's driving, funny and beautiful words. A blend of poetry, memoir and short story, Slug is an absolutely joyful read about the human condition: from birth to death and her attempt to manage the tangle in-between. 
 

About the Author 

Hollie McNish is a poet and author based between Glasgow and Cambridge. She won the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry for her poetic parenting memoir – Nobody Told Me - of which The Scotsman stated ‘The World Needs this Book’. She has published four further collections of poetry – Papers, Cherry Pie, Plum and her most recent poetic memoir Slug...and other things I’ve been told to hate, which is a Sunday Times Bestseller. With fellow poet Sabrina Mahfouz, she co-wrote Offside , a play relating the history of UK women’s football, and has just completed a re-imagining of Sophocles’ Greek Tragedy Antigone, published in October 2021 with Hachette. Hollie loves writing. Her poetry has been translated into German, Spanish, Hungarian, Polish, Japanese and French. She is a patron of Baby Milk Action. 

Hollie is a big fan of literary accessibility. Her online poetry videos have garnered millions of views worldwide. She is the first poet to have recorded an album at Abbey Road Studios, London and tours extensively. Her poetry has been translated into German, Spanish, Hungarian, Polish, Japanese and French. She reads in English, French and German. She is a patron of Baby Milk Action.
