Digital Artifact : Call for Submissions : April 30th

Call for Submissions
**Deadline April 30th**

Digital Artifact, a new, online journal created in conjunction with the Artifact Reading Series and Press, seeks work that interrogates the role of narrative in contemporary culture. We're specifically interested in how the internet, digital culture, global and non-Western literature, pop culture, eroticism, documentary, philosophy, politics and war are creating hybrid texts and new forms of narrative and literature.

The first issue of the journal will be dedicated to examining Narrative and Global Digital Culture. What is the impact of the internet and global culture on language and conceptions of narrative? We invite creative responses that explore this question, whether through fiction, criticism, experimental prose, or web-based audio-visual work.

A series of salons focusing on related topics will be held in conjunction with production of the web journal. To find out more about participating in the salons, email digitalartifact@gmail.com . Find out more about Artifact online at artifactsf.org.

We look forward to reading your work!
Chana Morgenstern, Amanda Davidson and the Editorial Team
