One-Year Gift Membership (Tax-Deductible Donation)


Looking for the perfect gift for a writer in your life? Support their efforts to get published with a one-year membership to Electric Literature! Every writer knows that submitting work can often feel futile and dispiriting. At Electric Lit, we’ve designed our membership program to make the submissions process more streamlined, encouraging, and personal. Our literary magazines and website feature award-winning, internationally-recognized writers alongside fresh new voices, and much of that work comes from unsolicited submissions. While nonmembers must wait for our regular open submission periods, which occur only a few times per year, members can submit their short stories, essays, poetry, flash, graphic, and experimental narratives for our consideration 365 days a year. Member submissions receive a personalized note from our editors within 3 months, as opposed to an estimated 6 to 8 month response time for open submissions. Members also receive discounts off all merchandise in our store, invitations to online and in-person events, and other exclusive offers and perks throughout the year. Finally, your support helps sustain Electric Literature, and literature more broadly, at a time when it may be more crucial than ever. If you'd like to sign up for a membership for yourself, you can do so on our membership page.
