The Sylvia Plath Literary Festival is working with local schools to explore Sylvia Plath’s work through drawing, writing and zine-making. Jasmine Simms and Lily Arnold, part of our resident poets, Dead Women Poets Society, are working with pupils from Calder High School to create zines illustrating their writing, and Louise Crosby will be working with pupils from Heptonstall Infant and Junior school to create bed drawings and poems inspired by Sylvia Plath’s The Bed Book.
We hope to be able to display student’s work in local libraries during the festival.
