Welcome to The Lit Platform.
We’re here to explore, challenge and promote writing, publishing and storytelling in all their forms.
Funded by Arts Council England, our philosophy is leftfield and progressive but built from real commercial knowhow. We like to work with bright people who wear it lightly, from prize-winning authors to unsung young voices and specially commissioned artists. In doing so, we champion the work of creatives across forms and platforms, from digital publishing to graphic design, postcard fiction to immersive illustration.
Each issue of our quarterly digital magazine, The Lit, takes an industry theme and flips it. With fresh perspectives on publishing, digital culture and innovation.
Underpinned by a commitment to skills development, knowledge sharing and network building, The Lit Platform is chock-full of rich content, events and opportunities. Scroll down and sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear more.
If you want to get in touch directly, or submit an article idea for consideration, then email [email protected] – we look forward to hearing from you.
