Benjamin Zephaniah says ‘I can’t take my ears off her’, Kate Tempest describes her poetry as ‘welcoming, galvanising and beautiful’. With over ten million YouTube views for her online poetry performances, Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose readings are not to be missed.

Here, she will be joining us to perform poems and talk about her latest poetry collection, Plum: a wise, sometimes rude and piercingly candid collection about growing up. She talks fruit and flesh, guilt, sex, politics and breasts, together with the urgent need to find a voice for poems that will somehow do the whole glorious riot justice. Books will be available to purchase at the event. There will be a book signing afterwards.
