Plum - Hollie McNish - a review


Hollie Mcnish’s new book Plum is a page turner of a poetry book. 
I read it in one sitting today, sitting in the afternoon sun, recovering from a bout of tonsillitis. 716 more words

Performance Poetry

Something very powerful happens when poetry is spoken aloud and performed.

Poetry in all its forms captures and expresses thoughts, feelings and experiences in a raw and visceral way. 143 more words

Should be seen with some sort of 3D glasses, but it’s still very cool without them.

Bitch Planet Triple Feature #1 (comics, fiction)

This is three short stories that take place within the universe of the main Bitch Planet series. I really like getting snippets of people and stories outside of the main narrative in dystopias, and these worked really well as being both true to the world of the story and as stories within themselves. 499 more words

Plum - Hollie McNish

I don’t really remember when I stopped reading poetry. When I was a child my Mum and I used to read through our Palgrave’s Golden Treasury (favourites were Stevie Smith’s Not Waving But Drowning and Dylan Thomas Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night) and I especially loved it when we read Under Milk Wood (Mum’s Welsh accent is a bit rubbish but I still enjoyed it). 310 more words
