After All We Have Travelled, a debut collection by Sarala Estruch, contains distinctive and moving poems about the many journeys life can take us on – across continents and cultures, through decades of family history, enduring though grief and embarking into motherhood.




Sarala Estruch is a British poet and writer of mixed European and Indian heritage. Her debut pamphlet, Say, was published with flipped eye in 2021. Her work has appeared in The Guardian, The New Statesman, The Poetry Review, and Wasafiri, and she has received commissions from the BBC, the National Trust, the Brontë Society, and the Forward Arts Foundation. Sarala was a winner of the Poetry School/Nine Arches Press Primers Competition in 2017, and, in the same year, she was selected as a Ledbury Critic.

In 2017, The Poetry School and Nine Arches Press launched their nationwide Primers scheme for a third time, in search of exciting and emerging talent in contemporary poetry, with Hannah Lowe and Jane Commane as selecting editors. After reading through hundreds of anonymous entries, and narrowing down the choices from longlist to shortlist, three poets emerged as clear choices: Romalyn Ante, Sarala Estruch and Aviva Dautch. Primers Volume Three now collects together a taster of new poems; a lively, thought-provoking and distinctive introduction to new voices in poetry which we expect will be ones-to-watch in the very near future.
