  • Hollie McNish wins Ted Hughes award

  • Hollie McNish has won the Ted Hughes Award for her collection Nobody Told Me (Blackfriars), a collection of McNish's diary entries which document parenthood and address love, sex, feeding, gender, ice cream, race, commercialism and finding secret places to scream every once in a while. According to the judges, “this collection broke new ground reporting from the front line of motherhood. Poetry and prose mix well creating an internal rhythm that is conversational and honest. Hollie McNish deals with big issues without flinching from inadequacies and failings whilst reaching out to new poetry readers with her accessible style.” http://poetrysociety.org.uk/competitions/ted-hughes-award/

These essays will be archived and freely available from May 2017 via the Trackingshot website. Enroute to the Mojave Desert the artists will embark on an investigative road trip exploring the relationship of the desert to the body, time and production, gathering field notes and interview transcripts which will form the basis of further projects.
