Welcome to Backslash Lit, an online magazine for electronic literature.


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

  • Experiment with literary mediums
  • Step out of their comfort zones
  • Showcase interdisciplinary creativity
  • Inspire the unconventional

This magazine 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 fourth issue is now live on our website. Check it out here.
