Support Electric Lit: Become a Member!

Members have access to year-round submissions and other premium content

Electric Literature is committed to publishing work that is intelligent and unpretentious, paying all our writers, and offering our content for free. Members of Electric Literature are essential to supporting our mission of making literature relevant, exciting, and inclusive.

Our membership program is hosted on Drip, Kickstarter’s patronage platform.

Members of Electric Literature will receive:

  1. A monthly eBook sampling Recommended Reading’s rich archives, on topics such as magical cities, family conflict, gender and power, and more. These eBooks are compatible with most e-readers including Kindle and iBooks, and are not available anywhere else. Recommended Reading, our acclaimed weekly fiction magazine, has published over 300 issues to date, each with a personal recommendation from a top writer or editor.
  2. Early access to The Blunt Instrument, Elisa Gabbert’s advice column to writers, and a special members-only bonus column every other month.
  3. Access to year-round submissions for fiction and essays, with a guaranteed response time of 3 months or less. (Regular submissions have a 6-month response time.) Never wait to submit your work to Electric Lit again!
  4. Members at the Novel level receive a “Read More Women” tote, and members at the Epic level get a copy of Papercuts, a party game for the rude and well read.

Electric Lit, Inc. is 501(c)3 nonprofit, and membership fees are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
