LitCharts is working to make literature more accessible to readers at every level. More than 50 million students, teachers, parents, and general-interest readers turn to LitCharts to get everything they need for everything they read! In creating LitCharts, the co-founders tapped into their experience as the original editors of SparkNotes to take a totally new approach to analyzing and explaining literature. Using side-by-side summaries, theme analysis, and interactive data visualizations, LitCharts helps teachers teach literature and helps students learn it.
LitCharts is hiring writers to help us expand our collection of over 1500 literature guides. We’re looking for writers with a deep understanding of literature and the ability to analyze and explain it to others. Here are two examples of our literature guides:
