Every year, Litro publishes international editions focusing on different parts of the globe.
We are living at a time when borders and frontiers dividing lines of all sorts, both geographical and ideological, form part of everyday discourse. In Latin America, a continent composed of many countries, some borders are more fraught than others. Here we invite authors from eight Latin American countries to write about their own experience of boundaries, real and imagined, in a bold array of poetry, fiction, and essay.
We celebrated this issue with a festival in New York (14 September 2017) and London (26th – 31st October). In New York, Litro held a launch event and benefit night with Restless Books as part of the Brooklyn Book Festival
In London, Litro teamed up with friends Cervantes Institute, The London Library, The British Library & Waterstones to present to Londoners a series of events from drumming workshops to poetry readings.
