Theresa Sowerby explores the work of Sylvia Plath.



Monday 4 November 2019 | 11am | Todmorden Library


Theresa Sowerby has written plays, poetry, and short stories. She lectures on poetry, drama, and fiction, and runs Real Live Poets, a Poetry Society Stanza group in Manchester. She has had poetry and flash fiction published in several magazines and anthologies. Her poem Migration won first prize at the 2017 Huddersfield Literature Festival and her poem Calder was published in the 2018 Ginkgo Prize Ecopoetry Anthology.


Sylvia Plath was an American poet, novelist, and short story writer best known for her confessional poetry and her two published collections, The Colossus and Other Poems, and Ariel, and for The Bell Jar, a semi-autobiographical novel published shortly before her suicide. The poet has aroused much posthumous attention and heated debate about her life and her relationship with Ted Hughes.
