Call for Digital Art and Literature – The New River Journal

The New River is accepting submissions until April 12!

The New River is one of the oldest journals devoted exclusively to digital writing and art, currently housed at Virginia Tech. We’re looking for new media, sound, text, and moving image pieces, but we are also eager to see new, boundary-pressing experiments between these forms. The New River is seeking work that glitches and gleans, encodes and engages.

In the past, The New River has featured artists like Nick Montfort, Stephanie Strickland, J.R. Carpenter, Alex Saum, Lai-Tze Fan, Mark Marino, Mez Breeze, and many others.

We strongly encourage work from underrepresented and minority artists as well as work from emerging artists from a wide continuum of identities. The New River welcomes and values diversity, and we seek to include artwork from voices all over the world. Please email submissions to More information on how to submit can be found at:

We highly recommend that artists review our website to get an idea of the kinds of work that we publish.

We look forward to reviewing your work!


The New River is a journal of digital/new media writing and art. When founded by Edward Falco with help from Len Hatfield in 1996, The New River was the first journal devoted exclusively to digital writing and art. The New River posts new issues twice a year in December and May, and it has been selected by the Electronic Literature Organization for inclusion in the Library of Congress’s Internet Archive Project.
