Welcome! to The Latin America: Breaking Borders issue Litro#165.

 We are living at a time when borders and frontiers – dividing lines of all sorts, both geographical and ideological – form part of everyday discourse. It is a time of mass migration and countless individual ones. In Latin America, some borders are more fraught than others. Litro invited authors from eight of its countries to write about their own experience of boundaries, real and imagined, resulting in a bold array of poetry, fiction, and essays. Litro’s mission is to use the power of storytelling, in its attempt to make sense of why the world is the way it is. Giving a platform to some of the most exciting international voices in fiction and non-fiction and give a platform for their work to be read and understood enabling cross-cultural conversations that we hope provide our readers with cathartic escapism. To read work from other international writers to watch, get our All-Access membership for subscription to our print magazine and unlimited online access and help us to help writers.
