Meeting writers on the page since 1996


Leonardo Boix

“A leap away from becoming ghost.

She stood erect, her bathing floral suit,

sugared marigolds, a petal cap. She knew

it wouldn’t last.¡Saltá, mamá!—Jump.

Extract from ‘Gnarl’ – included in the showcase

“Gnarl was inspired by my experience growing up in Buenos Aires as a queer person, and as a young Latinx immigrant to the UK. I was given the opportunity of presenting my work to TLC as prize for winning the Exiled Writers Poetry Competition 2018. The report by Simon Barraclough was detailed, in-depth and illuminating in all respects, and has been put to very good use.” From the Introduction
