Welcome to Backslash Lit, a webzine and learning community for electronic literature.


Backslash aims to provide a platform for artists, writers, and readers to:

  • Experiment with literary and artistic mediums
  • Showcase interdisciplinary creativity
  • Inspire the unconventional
  • Expand creative comfort zones

This zine is not only for those with a love for both programming and poetry, but also those with passion for one and curiosity for the other. We encourage poets who are not as well-versed in programming and programmers who are not as well-versed in poetry to create and submit.


Our sixth issue, "ZIP / FREEZE / BUNDLE", is now live on our website. Check it out here.
