Our Arts Editor Becky Ayre is stepping down from her post in June to concentrate on other projects, so we’re looking for someone to take her place. Are you passionate about theatre, live performance and art and able to convey that passion in words?

The Litro Arts Editor will be constantly on the look-out for new, exciting and fringe events in London and across the UK. You will be reviewing events for the Litro website yourself, and also coordinating reviews from a team of regular Litro contributors, assigning work, editing and advising.

A working knowledge of WordPress would be an advantage, although not essential. Passion and solid writing skills are paramount.

You will need to be able to commit the equivalent of at least a day a week to the role, not including any events attended. This is an unpaid position, but it’s fantastic experience for anyone interested in Arts writing, reviewing and magazine editing. You’ll also get access to a wide range of events as a reviewer.

If you are interested, please email our Online Editor Emily by Sunday 26th May on with a CV and a sample review of something you’ve seen in the last three months.
