Electric lit

This short story needs some pixels.

The folks behind Electric Literature argue that the short story is the literary form best suited to our easily distracted, non-committal age. To breathe some life into the underappreciated genre, they’ve paired up top-shelf authors like Pulitzer winner Michael Cunningham with filmmakers and visual artists to create book trailers and other videos, some inspired by just one line of a story, and post them intermittently on their YouTube channel. It’s a new project just launched this summer, but we’re already hungry for more.
