Naomi Foyle has mentored three first poetry collections, and edited seven others. As a mentor she works with a poet in depth, helping the writer to identify strengths and weaknesses in their work. She also gives reading suggestions, and helps the writer to plan a professional approach to editors. As both mentor and editor Naomi takes a sensitive but thorough approach, both respecting the poet’s voice, and helping to hone it on the page.
