Thank you and happy holidays!

Dear Electric Literature members,

2016 has been an exciting year for Electric Lit, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

We’re holding a membership drive during the month of December, and we want to take the opportunity to thank you, our devoted members who need no recruiting. As a small token of our gratitude, we’re offering a special members only discount to everything in our Etsy store — including our new card game, Papercuts — for all your holiday shopping needs! Just enter the code ELECTRICIAN for 20% off at checkout from now until the end of 2017.

We’d also like to remind you of your regular membership benefits, which include full access to over 230 stories in the Recommended Reading archives and year-round submissions. Some exciting additions to the archive this year include: stories by Ted Chiang, J. Robert Lennon, and Jennifer Haigh; poetry by Morgan Parker; and novel excerpts from Karan Mahajan, Brit Bennett, and Jonathan Lee.

If you misplace any of the information above, you can always check the membership benefits page, and, to be sure you’re satisfied with your membership, we invite you to email editors@electricliterature with questions, suggestions, and concerns throughout the year.

The best experiences of reading literature are incredibly intimate, and yet, as an online publisher, our audiences can sometimes feel distant. Your membership crosses that distance; we know we can count on you to appreciate great literature, and that makes the work we do worthwhile. So, thank you!

With best wishes for the holidays,

Halimah Marcus
Executive Director, Electric Literature

As a 501©3 nonprofit, your membership is tax-deductible. We’ll send you a gift acknowledgement for your taxes in early 2017.
