Work & Projects

The Literary Platform has worked with global clients across publishing, technology and the public sector. Client work includes strategic reviews of publishing businesses with a focus on digital, creating frameworks for organisational change, research and development, proposition testing, devising skills development programmes, audience development and project management. The Hospital Club h100 list cited The Literary Platform as one of the ‘most innovative and influential companies in the creative industries'.


The Literary Platform will relaunch in September 2019 with a new look and feel but with the same passion for publishing and a space for deep thinking about writing culture in a digital age. The next phase of the magazine will be managed in association with Falmouth University and Stranger Collective and will be run by a brand new team of writers and publishers. David Devanny, Clare Howdle, Helen Gilchrist, Anna Kiernan and Luke Thompson will be curating insights into writing culture, digital storytelling, book publishing and the creative industries. Established in 2009 by Sophie Rochester, The Literary Platform magazine has covered thinking about books and technology, and innovative projects that blended the two for a decade. The Guardian described it as 'an inspiring browse around some of the innovative and collaborative experiments taking place in the exciting physical-to-digital realm'. In 2019 Sophie handed the platform over to the new team, after setting up Yodomo, which delivers creative experiences both online and offline.
