Hollie McNish Wins Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry

Congratulations to Hollie McNish on winning the Poetry Society's Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry with Nobody Told Me - Poetry and Parenthood! The prize was awarded last night by Poetry Society judges Jo Bell, Bernard O’Donoghue and Mercury Prize-nominated singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams.

Nobody Told Me is a collection of poems and stories taken from Hollie's diaries; one person's thoughts on raising a child in modern Britain, of trying to become a parent in modern Britain, of sex, commercialism, feeding, gender and of finding secret places to scream once in a while.

The Poetry Society's Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry seeks to recognise excellence in poetry, highlighting outstanding contributions made by poets to our cultural life. The £5,000 prize is donated by Carol Ann Duffy, funded from the annual honorarium the Poet Laureate traditionally receives from HM The Queen.
