Poet and alumna Hollie McNish on BBC Radio 4
Poet and King’s alumna, Hollie McNish (KC 2001), was featured on BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour last Wednesday. Her segment, “The peaks and troughs of pregnancy and parenthood explored through the prism of poetry”, is currently available on BBC Radio 4 iPlayer. During the interview, she reads her poems ‘OK, Mum’ and ‘You’.
Last year, Hollie won the 2015 Arts Foundation Spoken Word Award. The piece Alive, for which King’s alumna and composer Kate Whitley (KC 2007) won the 2015 British Composer Award, was a setting of a poem written by Hollie. This month Hollie releases her new book, Nobody Told Me: Poetry and Parenthood.
