Elio is a 21-year-old London-born poet. His poems play with the parts left out. They move within textures of betweenness, through a kaleidoscopic lens of transmasculinity, queerness, magic, mythology and memory. He was the 2020 Roundhouse Poetry Slam Winner and he was a finalist in BBC Words First 2021. He has performed at Hay Festival, Last Word Festival, the Barbican and the Southbank Centre. His work has been featured multiple times on BBC Radio 4. He is an alumnus of the Roundhouse Poetry Collective and Apples and Snakes Writing Room.
