Hollie McNish (1983) is an English poet and poetry performer. She has published five collections of poetry, and her fourth collection Nobody Told Me (2016) about the physical and mental states of a young mother won the Ted Hughes Award. McNish has published the poetry album Versus (2014) as Hollie Poetry, the first poet to record her material at the famous Abbey Road Studios. McNish wrote the play Offside with the Egyptian-British writer Sabrina Mahfouz dealing with the fascinating and certainly relevant topic in the UK – women’s right to play football. In 1921, the English Football Association banned women from playing football professionally for 50 years. McNish is very active on social media and her YouTube videos have attracted a lot of attention, which is why it is no wonder she has attracted more than 4 million views on YouTube.
