Call for Literary Works for ELMCIP anthology of European Electronic Literature

Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP), a collaborative research project funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) JRP for Creativity and Innovation, seeks submissions of electronic literature from European writers and practitioners for its upcoming anthology. We are looking for innovative literary works by European authors that take advantage of digital media and computation.

Submissions will be accepted to September 30, 2011.

The anthology will provide a sample of Europe’s diverse electronic-literature practices. It will include around thirty works along with teaching materials from educators interested in electronic-literary practices. The anthology will be published online and on a cross-platform DVD.

All content will be offered under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial- NoDerivs 3.0 License allowing the disc to be installed, duplicated, and shared by individuals, libraries, and educational institutions. The intent is to provide educators, students and the general public with a free curricular resource containing a variety of examples of electronic literary works.

Works will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • European diversity: to represent a broad cross-section of authors and artists from different European cultures.
  • Formal diversity: to represent a broad sampling of approaches to electronic literature demonstrating the influence of multiple modes of practice and different types of interdisciplinary art practice.
  • Pedagogical relevance: the committee will attempt to select a range of works appropriate for teaching in secondary and university classroom settings

Submission Guidelines:

  • Authors may submit two works.
  • Works may be in any European language.
  • At least one author should have been a resident of a European country at the time the work was created.
  • Previously published works will be accepted for submission.

Submissions will only be accepted via the ELMCIP Knowledge Base:
