In response, the Video Vortex project continues to examine critical issues that are emerging around the production and distribution of online video content. Continue reading

Anomalous Press: Call for Literary Arts

Anomalous Press: Call for Literary Arts:

Anomalous Press, a new multi-format multi-media literary arts journal, welcomes submissions of literary works of texts (poetry, fiction, nonfiction and translation) and especially seeks hybrid, multi- and new media, audio or video literary works, and images. We realize literary is a slippery term, and we most assuredly do not mean the fifth definition as listed on Neither do we think of the term as exclusive — H.G. Wells and Anaïs Nin created great works of literature. If it’s good, it’s good. Period. We want works that challenge us, and challenge you, to move outside our comfort zones, individually and collectively, and socially and anti-socially, and liminally and subliminally, and into spaces new and old and musty and fresh.
