Litro Magazine is the UK’s largest read free short stories and creative arts magazine, in print with a fully fledged online platform providing a place for readers, writers and the broader creative community to discuss various aspects of literature, arts and culture through features, reviews, non-themed fiction, interviews, columns. Litro is self-selecting for people with an interest in literature, culture and innovation, and is perfect reading for those with busy lives.
When the first issue of Litro was published in April 2005, the main free paper for commuters and city dwellers was the morning Metro. Since then many tabloid style free sheets have joined the the field which, like the Metro can be skim-read and quickly discarded. Litro is different our central aim has always been to provide commuters and city dwellers with an inspiring, thought-provoking alternative that takes you places you don’t normally think about when travelling around the city.
We believe literary magazines should not just be targeted at writers themselves, or even those with a particular interest in literature, instead Litro believes in reaching the general reader whether they be a commuter, someone browsing in a bookshop or in a bar or a café to meet a friend. Fiction should be enduring, not disposable, and as such Litro in print, is especially designed to fit in your pocket or bag we think of it as a small free book.
We believe these qualities- inspiration, endurance, focus- benefit our readers and advertisers alike.
