ELC3 Call for Submissions

(Deadline: Nov. 5, 2014)

The Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) is now seeking submissions for Volume 3 of the Electronic Literature Collection (http://eliterature.org/elc3/). ELO was founded in 1999 and has released two collections, in 2006 and 2011. The third volume is slated for publication in 2016 and will continue to archive outstanding examples of electronic literature from an international community of practitioners. The goal of this volume is to represent the current state of electronic literature and to archive historically significant works from earlier generations.

From hypertext and kinetic poetry to ARGs and Twitter bots, we invite submissions from a wide range of fields. Electronic literature (or e-lit) thrives at the intersection of digital media and textuality. ELO offers a broad definition of e-lit as “works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer” (http://eliterature.org/what-is-e-lit/). For examples of the range of writing previously collected, Volume 1 and 2 are available at http://collection.eliterature.org. These earlier volumes were published under a Creative Commons license, distributed in physical storage media, and available open-access through a website. The ELC3 will follow a similar format.

Please visit the ELC3 page to submit works you’d like to be considered for the Collection: http://eliterature.org/elc3

Entries in any language are welcome.

Deadline: November 5, 2014
