Unseen Mentor

5 Feb 2019

Almost any successful writer can trace a guide, someone without whom their route to acclaim would have been far more treacherous. For many poets from the UK, for the last decade and a half, Jacob Sam-La Rose has been that unseen mentor. 

His influence stretches from school workshops, initiatives such as the famed Barbican Young Poets and his work as poetry editor with flipped eye publishing. Here he presents a trio of his poet-mentees: Miriam Nash, Gabriel Akamo and Bella Cox.
