Hollie McNish & Joelle Taylor: Taboo-Busting Poets at Work

Ted Hughes Award-winning poet Hollie McNish’s irreverent book, Slug, brings a focus on diverse topics including grief, the body and anti-masturbation pants. Joelle Taylor’s C+nto & Othered Poems won the 2021 T S Eliot Prize for its examination of the art and protest of butch counterculture. What happens when you combine two earth-shaking poets who recognise no limits and fear no taboos? Find out in this thrilling event with Edinburgh Makar Hannah Lavery.
