We are a member-supported organization, and we depend upon your contributions to survive and keep working on behalf of electronic literature. We also strive to make all of our resources publicly available, so there are no parts of our website hidden behind “members only” barriers to try to entice your donations.

Your membership is, however, essential in keeping resources such as the ELO Directory and this site available and updated. It will allow us to continue producing publications, putting on readings and conferences, and advocating the literary possibilities of the digital medium.

The Electronic Literature Organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is recognized as a charitable institution by the Internal Revenue Service (Federal Tax ID #36-4314614). Your contribution is tax-deductible.
