Word of Colour Productions interviewed the self confessed tech geek, writer and editor Jacob Sam-La Rose on the impact of digital platforms and trends on his writing for The Writing Platform.
In 2012, Jacob’s poetry collection ‘Breaking Silence’ (Bloodaxe) was shortlisted for both the Forward Felix Dennis Award and the Aldeburgh Fenton Award. A techie and writer since the 1990s, Jacob has developed websites for literature development agencies, including Spread the Word, Apples & Snakes and Black Inc, and continues to advocate for the positive impact of new technology on literary and cross-art practice.
This interview was filmed by Words of Colour Productions in partnership with The Writing Platform. It will be the first of four profiles that Words of Colour Productions will produce for the new portal.
