Electric Literature
"MISSION
Electric Literature’s mission is to guide writers and readers through a rapidly evolving publishing landscape. By embracing new technologies and mixed media, collaborating with other publishers, and engaging the literary community online and in-person, Electric Literature aims to support writers while broadening the audience of literary fiction, and ensure that literature remains a vibrant presence in popular culture.

HISTORY
Founded by Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum as a quarterly journal in 2009, Electric Literature launched the first fiction magazine on the iPhone and iPad, and was described by the Washington Post as a “refreshingly bold act of optimism.” The eponymous quarterly anthology paid new and emerging writers and published their work to every viable format, including paper, and was the first to use twitter as a serious literary medium by tweeting an entire short story (Rick Moody’s “Some Contemporary Characters,” Electric Literature no. 3)."
