About this item
About this item
Page to Performance, a poetry organization based in Cambridge, UK and led by Hollie McNish and her colleague, Inja, worked with a group of amazing young people for three months in summer, 2013, to find out what it is they all love about riding.
Through discussion, poetry workshops and interviews, they put their answers into a poem written by Hollie McNish.
This is the book, and e-Book, that will be the grassroots movement's bible for riding instead of driving an automobile. It will become an anthem for young people around the world, and the interactive video link will inspire all people, especially people who don't think about driving-they jump into their car and press the gas pedal without a second thought. Hollie McNish is a RISING INTERNATIONAL STAR, not afraid to speak out, speak her mind on tough issues, and bring about CHANGE.
Here at Green Writers Press, we are thrilled to be the first U.S. publisher of Hollie's bicycle riding anthem, her call-to-action for all people to ride and save gas and petrol, and have fun in the process. A percentage of profits from book sales goes to 350.org-to focus on their "Moving Planet" initiatives.
Hollie McNish's poetry moves with the rhythms, the excitements and disappointments of contemporary life. Deeply committed to the idea of language as a tool of self-expression and communication, her poems are accessible, deeply felt, but simultaneously crackling with a passion and wit all her own. Whether writing about parenthood, bicycle riding, newspaper bias, body fascism, science or the trials and acquittals of love, she steers clear of the hackneyed, the tired and clich d, to produce poems which ignite the imagination. Written more often than not in the intensity of the moment, McNish views our world with fresh poetic verse to produce sometimes startling, sometimes uncomfortable truths. With a devoted following of fans from her poetry readings and performances, Why I Ride is a free-wheeling blast of creative expression, written in verse that enlightens and entertains. Her first collection of poems, entitled Papers.
