Electric Literature is Moving to Medium
Electric Lit is committed to publishing—and paying writers—through the pandemic without any layoffs or pay cuts. Please consider supporting us during this difficult time. Donate here.
This morning, Medium announced that Electric Literature will be joining the Medium platform as one of its inaugural partners, alongside publishers like The Awl, The Ringer, The Hairpin, and others.
Electric Literature’s mission is to keep literature a vital part of popular culture by embracing digital innovation, and moving our website to Medium’s publishing platform supports that mission. As a non-profit, we’re always looking for ways to have the greatest impact with the most efficient use of our resources. Medium’s large and engaged community of writers will allow us to promote literature to a new audience, grow our readership, and further support our writers by helping them build their online platforms.
Readers can still find us on electricliterature.com, and we hope that you’ll also follow us on Medium at medium.com/electric-literature so that you never miss a post. While you’re here, please enjoy our new look and mobile-friendly reading experience. By early summer, we’ll fully migrate to Medium, and electricliterature.com will be our only URL.
We believe this new publishing platform will help Electric Literature remain a vibrant and independent organization, with a publication that matches our vision of where literature is headed.
As ever, thank you for reading!
