TheFLR. The Florentine Literary Review is looking for a talented illustrator to add lines and layers to its third issue.





The bilingual literary magazine’s editorial board is putting the finishing touches to its selection of short story authors and poets who will delight the pages of the third edition of the publication, but we’re still missing an essential ingredient. The illustrator of TheFLR will be a central character, an author in his or her own right, whose pen or pencil will etch the diverse stories of the magazine according to his or her personal style and own take on the theme of the Holy/Il Sacro.




Issue One of The FLR launched in October 2016 thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, followed by Issue Two in May 2017. The project has been met with critical acclaim in Italy and internationally. Get your copy here.

Applications must be sent by email to [email protected] and [email protected] by the final stroke of midnight on December 18, 2017.
