“Litro” the originates from street slang for “lighter” in Brazil – it is the perfect name for our work. Shining a light on literary talent. Illuminating our world through the diverse voices and experiences of its inhabitants. Igniting a fire for literature. We want to keep publishing the best new writing.
Founded in 2005, out of a passion for literature and a burning belief that writing can change the world, Litro has since developed into a leading literary arts platform publishing both emerging and established talent with, at its core, an experienced editorial team and a host of talented contributors, bringing readers the best new writing from around the world.
Before the advent of disposable ‘swipe’ culture the printed word really did have the power to change the world. Writers such as Chinua Achebe, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and George Orwell transformed our views; of ourselves and of our actions. We know that those transformative minds and talents are still out there. Well crafted prose still has the power to make us stop and think. We believe, in these dizzyingly changing times that now, more than ever, emerging literary talent needs a platform from which to be heard and absorbed.
We have helped kick-start the literary journeys of several writers to acclaim, such as Eleanor Catton (2013 Man Booker Prize winner), Nikesh Shukla, Stuart Evers, Clare Wigfall, Lucie Whitehouse, Louise Stern, Sara Maitland, Peng Shepherd to name but a few. Their work sits alongside short stories by established authors like Naomi Alderman, Benjamin Zephaniah, Irvine Welsh, William Dalrymple, Abraham Verghese, and many more. This helps to introduce the readers of established writers to sparkling new authors, poets, and essayists.
Having spent the last decade honing our platform and enhancing our skills in both literary publications and events, NOW is the time that we need your help to take Litro to the next level. With your support we can continue to commission more original work and grow the Litro platform to engage with more readers.
We thank you for your support!
