Electric Literature is now open to submissions of personal and critical essays, as well as humor, that reflect on the world of reading, writing, literature, and storytelling in all its forms. We’re particularly interested in pieces that examine the intersection of the literary world and other creative disciplines: film, fine art, music, video games, architecture–you name it.

Payment for essays & humor pieces is $50. Length is up to you; most essays we publish fall between 1500-5000 words.

    Thanks. But the link for submitting says, “Submissions to Recommended Reading are now closed.”

    Hasn’t been updated or truly closed?

    Noticing that essay submissions still are closed? Are you planning to reopen again soon?

    I’ve had some trouble with your website and didn’t see that essay submissions were closed. Unfortunately, I sent an essay today. Should I resend later?
