For Women’s History Month, #ReadMoreWomen

And important membership updates

Dear Electric Literature Members,

Today we launched a #ReadMoreWomen social campaign to celebrate Women’s History Month, and to kick off our membership program on Drip, Kickstarter’s new patronage platform. We encourage you to tweet with the hashtag #ReadMoreWomen to recommend books by women and nonbinary authors, and visit for essays by and about women.

As an incentive to founding members on Drip, we’re offering our new READ MORE WOMEN tote bags, pictured below. These tote bags aren’t available anywhere else. But, since you’re already a member, you can purchase one at 20% off with the code UrsulaLeGuin here. (The code is case sensitive.) This offer is exclusive to members and expires on April 7, 2018.

Though it’s not ideal to have multiple membership platforms, we want to be prepared in the event that Medium stops supporting publication memberships. You are also welcome to switch your membership account to Drip to a receive a complimentary tote in addition to year-round submissions, bonus editions of The Blunt Instrument, and a monthly Recommended Reading themed eBook. For now, Drip members do not yet have access to the full Recommended Reading archives.

Speaking of members-only submissions, we have been getting some great work lately! We recently accepted submissions by Electric Lit members Sequoia Nagamatsu and Benjamin Schaefer. To further incentivize you to submit, we’re guaranteeing a response time of less than 3 months, which is half the time it takes us to read regular submissions.

One more exciting update for all of you nonfiction writers: We’ve also added a members-only portal for essays! Links for both are below.



As always, if you have any questions please feel free to email me at Your support means so much to us; we really couldn’t exist without it.

Gratefully yours,

Halimah Marcus
Executive Director, Electric Literature
