Litro NY is the organic growth of Litro Magazine into the US market, and the continuation of Litro’s aim of finding and launching new international writers. While enriching the careers of existing authors, we have published debut writers for close to 10 years, including the likes of Stuart Evers, Anthony Doerr, Sabrina Mahfouz, Clare Wigfall, Richard House (ManBooker longlisted 2013), Janice Shapiro and many more. We want to engage with the American experience that will reflect the geographic cross-section of America, and continue with the Litro ethos of finding new ways of looking at the world through stories, seeking out the compelling and the controversial, the funny and the fantastic, the sad and the strange.
We have traditionally focused on short fiction, armed with a mission to discover new and emerging writers, giving them a platform to be read alongside stalwarts of the literary scene. Now we have also added more strings to our bow: including interviews, columns, podcasts, reviews, and features on literature, arts and culture. We've even ventured into LitroTV, so you can see and hear directly from your favourite writers. Of course, any good conversation runs, by its nature, two ways (or many ways) and we hope that you will engage with our stories and tell some of your own. As long as you have a story to tell, we want to hear it. We are now a fully-fledged online platform for non-themed fiction and literary nonfiction, as well as a place for readers, writers and the broader creative community to discuss various aspects of literature, arts and culture through features, reviews, columns and interviews.
