This is a diverse collection on the role and function of community in the contemporary practice of electronic literature, with ten essays by thirteen leading authors, providing wide-ranging perspectives and approaches. The collection offers historical narratives of institutions in the field, examples of how particular platforms or genres can inspire community, and stories of how ad hoc communities can form around specific creative projects. These case studies are histories of creative affiliations in electronic literature—snapshots of consensus-based communities in their process of formation—and offer a starting point for broader theoretical analyses of network-based creative community. 

 

Review

“Originating from the highly innovative research initiative, Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice, and the prestigious journal Dichtung Digital, Electronic Literature Communities makes clear that elec- tronic literature has emerged as a viable field of study and practice with an ecology of scholars, artists, organizations, publications, and activities contributing to its vibrancy and ongoing development. At a time when digital interventions are no longer anomalies but rather accepted and exciting modes of human expression, this book is a necessary read for anyone interested in the evolving nature of literary art.”— Dene Grigar, President, Electronic Literature Organization, and Director and Professor, The Creative Media and Digital Culture Program, Washington State University, Vancouver
