Leon Horton is a cultural journalist and humorist. After gaining his masters from the University of Salford, he drank himself into a corner working as a Court Reporter at Manchester Crown Court (wouldn't you?), lost the will to live writing "isn't everything great" bullshit for local advertising magazines, and enjoyed a failed stint as editor of Old Trafford News.
His writing is published by Beat Scene Magazine (UK), International Times (UK), Literary Heist (Canada), Empty Mirror (US), Beatdom (UK), The Animals Voice (US), Erotic Review (UK), Beatdom (UK) and TheGayUK.
In January 2019, he became a member of the European Beat Studies Network, an academic community of scholars, writers and artists concerned with the Beat Generation.
