Born in London, of Polish, Lithuanian and Romanian descent, Leila Segal trained as a barrister before going on to work as a legal editor and journalist for several years. Her debut short story collection, BREATHE: STORIES FROM CUBA (2016), was funded by Arts Council England, and originates in the time she spent living in Havana and Cuba’s rural far West. Her stories have been published in anthologies and journals including Wasafiri, Generations Literary Journal, Square Peg, Papeles de la Mancuspia, Loose Muse, The Lonely Crowd, and Ink, Sweat & Tears.
