Leila Lois

Leila Lois is a woman of Kurdish and Celtic heritage who has lived most of her life in Aotearoa. In her poems, Leila explores a personal sense of origin that, like the ocean, binds several landscapes and times, coming back to the idea that a timeless, boundless love pervades. Her publishing history includes Southerly Journal, Djed Press, Next in Colour, Lite Lit One, Delving Into Dance and Bent St Journal. She has just published her debut collection of poems with Girls On Key Press.
