Electric Lit’s Got a New Look

Welcome to our new site! All of your favorite EL content is now in one place, including essays, reviews, mixtapes and the Writing Life Around the World, as well as literary oddities from Okey-Panky, and fiction from Recommended Reading.

We hope you’ll follow the publication to get the latest stories. Just click “follow” in the top right hand corner of the homepage.

We’re also changing the way we use Tumblr, which has been the home of Recommended Reading since it launched in 2012. We’ll still post teasers for new issues every Wednesday, but we’ll also share other content from Electric Lit throughout the week. Each new issue of Recommended Reading will be free for a month before moving behind a pay wall. The full Recommended Reading archives are accessible to members only. Learn more about becoming a member here.

We hope you enjoy the new site, and thank you for reading!
