Litro is looking for a new Online Editor

badges8Litro Online is the web platform of one of London’s leading literary magazines. We have expanded and diversified our online presence to become a hub for new fiction, literary journalism, essay and reportage. We publish everything from book reviews to video interviews. Our current Online Editor, Emily Cleaver, is moving on, and so we are looking for a new team member to fill this exciting 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 be involved in running our Book Club, selecting titles and running online events. You will also 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, part time position. It is an advantage to be London-based, as you will be required to attend Litro’s London office, although there is an 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 by Friday 26th July.
