We are really excited to announce that this year’s judge will be the wonderful Hollie McNish.

She has published four further collections of poetry – Papers, Cherry Pie, Plum and her most recent poetic memoir Slug...and other things I’ve been told to hate, which is a Sunday Times Bestseller. With fellow poet Sabrina Mahfouz, she co-wrote Offside , a play relating the history of UK women’s football, and has just completed a re-imagining of Sophocles’ Greek Tragedy Antigone, published in October 2021 with Hachette.
