Be warned, this gets saucy quickly… Find out more about their event here: * Hollie McNish is an award-winning poet, writer and performer. She is the Sunday Times bestselling author of Slug (and other things I’ve been told to hate) and won the Ted Hughes award for new work in poetry with her poetry and parenting memoir Nobody Told Me. She has two further poetry collections, Plum and Cherry Pie, one modern adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy Antigone and alongside fellow poet Sabrina Mahfouz, co-wrote Offside, a play relating the history of UK women’s football. She loves writing and her live readings are not to be missed. Michael Pedersen is a prize-winning Scottish poet and author, and the current Writer in Residence at The University of Edinburgh. He’s published three acclaimed collections of poetry, with the title poem from his third, The Cat Prince & Other Poems, currently shortlisted for the Forward Poetry Prizes. His prose debut, Boy Friends, was published by Faber & Faber in 2022 to rave reviews in the UK and North America and was a Sunday Times Critics Choice. Pedersen has won a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship and John Mather’s Trust Rising Star of Literature Award. His work has attracted praise from the likes of Stephen Fry, Kae Tempest, Irvine Welsh, Shirley Manson, Maggie Smith and many more. He also co-founded the prize-winning literary collective Neu! Reekie!. Adam Biles is Literary Director at Shakespeare and Company. His latest novel, Beasts of England, a sequel of sorts to Animal Farm, is available now.
