The New River Journal: Call for Digital Art and Literature

The New River is accepting submissions until November 1st!

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 digital media, sound, computational text, interactive games, 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 Stephanie Strickland, J.R. Carpenter, Nick Montfort, Lai-Tze Fan, Mez Breeze, Winnie Soon, Kristen Gallerneaux, Steve Tomasula, and many others.

We strongly encourage work from underrepresented and minority artists as well as emerging artists from a wide continuum of identities. The New River welcomes and values diversity, and we seek to include voices from 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.
