Backslash Lit is a webzine seeking to publish and learn through electronic literature: creative works that use computational and electronic mediums as an art form. We seek to challenge the line between STEM and the arts and publish what cannot be traditionally printed on paper. This magazine is for the interdisciplinary and antidisciplinary, for the experimental and unconventional, for all that calls into question what art really means.
We began in May 2020 as purely an online journal. Starting fall 2021, we began focusing our efforts on creating informational content leading up to our publication cycle. We seek to publish two issues per year and share resources and blog content year-round.
