Litro is a place for you to tell stories—both fictional and real, personal and outward-looking. We welcome writers everywhere to transport us, from where we hunch over our desks or in stony silence on the bus, to different places—not always recognisable to us at first but soon familiar. Of course, a good conversation runs, by its nature, two ways (or perhaps many ways) and we hope that readers will engage with the stories and tell some of their own. As long as it’s a good story, we want to hear it. Litro has traditionally focused on the short fiction form, armed with a mission to discover new and emerging writers and give them a platform to be read alongside stalwarts of the literary scene. We’ve had some success, having kickstarted the literary journeys of several glimmering writers to acclaim, such as Stuart Evers, Naomi Alderman, Clare Wigfall, Nikesh Shukla, Andrew Crumey, Sarah Butler, Chris McCabe and more. The short story remains at the centre of what Litro is, but we have also added—and continue to add—several more strings to our bow: including, online, varying forms of nonfiction (personal essays, travel dispatches, narrative journalism, etc.) alongside personal and reflective commentary, interviews, and reviews on literature, arts, and culture from around the world.
