Cursive Knives

In Summer 2022, I ran Cursive Knives : Reading and Writing Sylvia Plath; an online course in weekly sessions. Participants were led through a reading list of Plath’s poetry, given context around her life and writing, and introduced to creative prompts to create their own writing, with a theme for each session.


“I feel like I’ve got a lot out of each session and think you’re a fantastic facilitator.”

Cursive Knives also runs sporadically as an hour long workshop, with writing prompts but no reading lists. These are sometimes themed, sometimes not, and have included prompts from tarot cards, NASA photography, dinner parties and unsent text messages.

We’re also a Cursive Knives community on Discord – a kind of commonplace book slash conversation pit. Join the mailing list for details of upcoming course links and Discord invitations.
