‘Words I Can Write With a Knife’ by Sameer Shazad

Today’s Friday Story features Sameer Shazad’s piece ‘Words I Can Write With a Knife,’ which explores the shape of letters and the process of writing. The result is a playful, abstract piece which invites the reader to search for meaning.

Sameer was a member of the First Story group at Dixons City Academy in Bradford, which was led by writer-in-residence Nasser Hussain. To read more writing by Sameer and the rest of the Dixons City Academy group, you can purchase their anthology, Don’t Change Anything, which is available from our website.
