Chalk present Hollie McNish

Chalk are delighted to welcome back internationally acclaimed poet and spoken word artist, Hollie McNish. Here, she will be joining us to perform poems, read from and chat honestly and openly from her collection, PLUM, as well as performing some favourites from previous books.

Plum is a collection of

poems which charts Hollie’s journey from childhood to attempted adulthood. Expect strong language as she talks about fruit and flesh, school discos, guilt, sex, politics, death, transformers and a lot of friendship.

Books will be available to purchase at the event. There will be a book signing afterwards

‘She writes with honesty, conviction, humour and love. She points out the absurdities we’ve grown too used to and lets us see the world with fresh eyes’ Kate Tempest

‘Her rhymes have a driving quality, urgent words pinning down fleeting feelings’ Observer

Suitable for ages 16+
