Wordsmiths & Co. - Jacob Sam-La Rose
Presented in partnership with Warwick Arts Centre, Nine Arches Press and Apples and Snakes
WORDSMITHS & CO.
The UK’s first live poetry talk show, featuring poets you know from the pages of books and from festival stages. A rare opportunity to witness them sharing stories, poems and opinions as they engage in no-holds-barred conversation right before your widened eyes.
GASP as words are made to perform daring feats of sound and meaning! Shudder as you discover how your favourite poems came to be! Cheer wildly at the apparent humanity of their creators!
This is live poetry. This is not for the faint of heart. This is Wordsmiths & Co.
Jacob Sam-La Rose’s work is grounded in a belief that poetry can be a powerful force within a community, and that it’s possible to combine the immediacy of poetry in performance with formal rigour and innovation on the page.
