2. The New River: A Hypermedia Archive

Sometime later this year, the English Department at Virginia Tech, in connection with The Blue Penny Quarterly, will launch The New River, a revolving archive of hypertext and hypermedia literature and art. I’ll be editing The New River, and consequently I’m interested in receiving submissions of original and unpublished hypertext and hypermedia. I would like to see lyric and narrative art that exploits the computer as a site for creative work. Since The New River will be a web-based archive, work produced in HTML is preferred. However, stand-alone hypertext/media will also be considered—to be published, perhaps, as work available for downloading. Information on submission procedures for The New River is available from The Blue Penny Quarterly:
