Made up of rich mix of academics and creatives, our collaborative approach reflects our commitment to in-depth but accessible content about writing and publishing culture which shapes how we live today.
A place where the conceptual and commercial interests collide, The Lit offers a quick fix of stories for the time poor and deep dive analysis for associative thinkers.
If you have a feature, interview or illustration in mind that connects with what we’re about, get in touch. We’d love to hear your ideas on all things story.
Issue One November 2019
In Praise of Short Attention Spans
This is the debut drop of The Lit, exploring publishing and storytelling in all its forms. Issue One finds us in praise of short attention spans. Of poems that won’t sit still. Of single clause stories daubed on walls. Of hooks that get you in an instant. We peer through the cracks in our concentration to explore the post-digital landscape. Time is tight. Attention’s expensive. Are you with us?
