Electric Literature

Electric Literature was set up by a group of writers intent on creating a viable publishing model for literary fiction in the digital age. The result was a quarterly anthology packed with innovative and moving short fiction.

Electric Literature has now released an iPad edition, ElectricLit FREE, featuring enhanced video playback, a built-in audiobook, live readings by Electric Literature authors, full-colour images, large-screen design and interactive graphics.

The iPad edition features original content by award-winning writers like Michael Cunningham (The Hours), MacArthur grant winners Colson Whitehead and Lydia Davis, and literary heavyweights Jim Shepard, Rick Moody (The Ice Storm), and Aimee Bender, alongside the publisher’s signature video collaborations which can now be seamlessly paired with the stories that inspired them through the application.

ElectricLit comes with work by Jim Shepard, along with Rick Moody’s “Contemporary Characters,” which was written for and first serialised via Twitter, a move that helped @ElectricLit gain over 150,000 followers.

The new iPad app format also allows Electric Literature to feature audio recordings of authors and actors reading the stories, alongside rich, beautiful photography and art.
