Hollie McNish on #GETLIPPY

Poet Hollie McNish’s work reflects on the English-speaking world’s inability to say the word ‘vulva’.

‘Society is shaped by language, and the language around women’s health is totally ridiculous,’ she says. For GET LIPPY Hollie, who in 2016 won the Ted Hughes Award for new work in poetry, has recorded an exclusive video of one of her poems, which is surely set to go viral – just like her other films on YouTube.
