Litro is looking for a new Online Editor

badges8We have expanded and diversified our online presence to become a hub for new fiction, literary journalism, essay, audio, reviews, reportage and more. We publish everything from book reviews to video interviews.  We are looking for a new team member to fill our online editor position.

As the Online Editor you will be responsible for overseeing all online content, developing ideas, liaising with contributors, shaping the direction of the online platform and managing the section editors. You will help maintain the back-end of a complex WordPress site, working on new features and managing our membership platform.

As the ideal candidate, you will:

  • Be passionate about literature, culture and writing
  • Have editorial experience
  • Have solid experience of WordPress, and basic knowledge of HTML
  • Have a good current knowledge of what’s going on in the literary world
  • Be able to provide examples of your published writing (online or in print)

This is a paid, full time position. It is an advantage to be London or New York based, as you will be required to attend events on behalf of Litro in either London or New York as we slowly ease out of the pandemic, office work will be a long term environment but for the remainder of 2021 and first quarter 2022 there will be the option to work primarily from home.

To apply, please send your CV and a sample of your writing (preferably something published online or in print), to eric.akoto@litro.co.uk by Friday 16th April.
