Leila Segal writes poetry and prose. Her work is often experimental, exploring fragmentation and strangeness, and how language can be used to unify or drive apart. Breathe: Stories from Cuba (Flipped Eye) is her debut collection, and originates in the time she spent living in Havana and the Pinar del Río province of Cuba. She visits the island regularly, and is working with writers there to develop a Spanish/English flash fiction and poetry broadsheet. Leila reads her work regularly in London.
