Jason Nelson notes: This promises to be a very exciting development. Even if you don’t submit something, please do send them messages of support and congratulations. We need more literary Journals exploring the genre.
Call for Submissions of Digital Animation, Electronic Literature etc.
The Prairie Schooner literary journal and the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, both of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, are developing a web site devoted to electronic literature. A spot in the pilot edition of the Prairie Schooner digital project is open. Artists, filmmakers, and/or programmers interested in submitting literary-inspired pieces for consideration should email their finished or near-finished, previously unpublished digital work (or links that provide access to the work) to Timothy Schaffert, Prairie Schooner Web Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Though we prefer that the project has not been featured on any other website, we will consider work you’ve published yourself on sites such as YouTube. With your submission, please provide information on the history of the piece.) You may also submit queries. You must secure rights for all material included in your multimedia submission, should we decide to include it. Submission period: Jan. 15, 2010 through March 15, 2011. (If your project is chosen it must be delivered in final form by April 15.)
The Prairie Schooner digital project goes live in fall 2011 at http://schooner.unl.edu
