Call-out for electronic poetry

Overland is seeking digital-born poetry, electronic poetry, poetry in programmable media and codeworks. That is, a poetry that isn’t just published online but one that requires the media and cultures provided by programmable machines and the network.

This isn’t the first time Overland will publish e-poetry or hypertextual works. Over ten years ago, at the turn of the millennium, the web expression of Overland, overland express, published hypertext and electronic poetry.

For an idea of what electronic poetry is, or can be, a wide range of work is available on the Electronic Literature Collections v1 and v2.

Submissions close on 15 September 2013 (for publication in October). The selection will be curated by Benjamin Laird, Overland’s website producer. Overland subscribers should submit their work in the form of a link. Work by non-subscribers will also be considered.



Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
