Hollie McNish: PLUM
Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House
Sunday 22nd October 2017
Hollie will be joining us to perform poems, read from and chat honestly and openly from her new collection, PLUM, as well as performing some favourites from previous books.
Hollie is an Arts Foundation Fellow in Spoken Word, has garnered over seven million YouTube views for her online poetry performances and was the first poet to record at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.
Throughout Plum, McNish allows her recent poems to be interrupted by earlier writing from her younger selves – voices that speak out from the past with disarming and often very funny results. Plum is a celebration, a salute to a life in which we are always growing, tripping, changing and discovering new selves to add to our own messy stores. It will leave the reader in no doubt as to why McNish is considered one of the most important poets of the new generation
