Litro Magazine

Litro Magazine is London’s leading short stories magazine that wants to find new ways of looking at the world through stories, seeking out the compelling and the controversial, the funny and the fantastic, the sad and the strange.

Traditionally Litro focused on short fiction, armed with a mission to discover new and emerging writers, giving them a platform to be read alongside stalwarts of the literary scene. More recently, the magazine added interviews, columns, podcasts, reviews, and features on literature, arts and culture. Additionally they ventured into LitroTV, where you can see and hear directly from your favorite writers.

February of last year Litro Magazine published the first of Litro’s World Series of issues in translation. The edition named Double Dutch contains a selection of contemporary stories and poetry from the Netherlands and Belgium, including poems by Ramsey Nasr and short stories by Chika Uniqwe and Sanneke van Hassel.

You can read the entire issue Litro #113 Double Dutch here. (c) Litro Magazine. Cover Design by Luke Bright. Make sure to visit the site of Litro Magazine for many more Dutch short stories, interviews and reviews and from many other countries.
