Hollie McNish

Hollie McNish is a true 21st century spoken word artist. She came 1st in the UK Slam Poetry finals and represented the UK in the World Poetry slam finals coming a very respectable 3rd behind USA and Canada. Hollie broke into the mainstream via the internet as a poet embraced by both young and old, female and male, creative thinkers, dreamers, business minds, housewives, popstars, nurses and leading blogs worldwide. Over the past few months 2 of her Youtube videos 'Mathematics' and 'Embarrassed' have been viewed 2 million times worldwide and recieved high praise both in print and online. Her fan base really is that varied. When she isn't reciting words of politics, economics, love, young people, race, breasts and all the issues in between that we often may think about but hardly ever articulate (not as well as Hollie, anyway!) she can be found running her 'Page To Performance' workshops. Hollie challenges the thoughts and perceptions of us all. Poet Benjamin Zephoniah says:"I can't take my ears off her." High praise indeed. Her powerful poems have taken her from Glastonbury Festival to recording at Abbey Road Studios that will feature the talents of the Dutch Metropole Orchestra putting her poetry to music. She has performed everywhere from The Southbank Centre to channel 4's Random Acts - Australia, Francem Portugal, Poland, Latvia, America and Canada. Hollie's poetry is now also highly sought after by ethical brands promoting their goods to a wider market with a thoughtful message.
