Part of The Last Word Festival, celebrating fearless storytelling.

Invisible Presence is a new collective of talented young British Latino writers celebrating the culture of the half a million Latinos living in the UK.

Drawing on everything from political tragedies and magic realism through to salsa/samba and telenovelas they will take you to a rich new world. Many of these young writers were born in the UK and are the first generation to truly combine the two cultures: a new and exciting hybrid.

The first bi-lingual collective of its kind, the writers are tutored by some of the UKs best loved young artists, including Costa nominated poet Kayo Chingonyi and novelists Keith Jarrett and Sarah Perry. Estamos presente, we are present.

Roundhouse turned my world around. It’s a really special place and I wouldn’t be where I am now without it.
