All funds generated go to the many exciting events and initiatives the ELO supports on behalf of e-literature artists and scholars. Here are some of our most prominent projects and events:

The Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 4 will be published later this year and will also be available open access.
We have relaunched our online archives as The NEXT, which showcases our digital preservation projects, including making Flash works accessible to current and future users.
We awarded funding for an initiative titled Emerging Spaces for E-Lit Creations, in which we sponsored the creation of two new publication venues: Filter and (RE)VERB.
