Leah Thorn is a spoken word poet, published through performance, film and anthologies in England and the United States. At the heart of her poetry is the autobiographical exploration of identity and issues of liberation.

In 2012 she undertook a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship, visiting women's correctional facilities across the United States with dance and theatre companies and in 2013 she received a Royal Society for Public Health Special Commendation Award for her contribution to Creative Arts and the Criminal Justice System.
For the 2016 FiLiArt show, she is showing collaborations with Allie Lee and Clare Unsworth.
