Submission Guidelines

Textshop Experiments publishes innovative and experimental scholarship, literature and art contributions working in or about electracy.  We also consider related essays, reviews, and multi-modal projects on digital culture and Internet studies.  Although the journal's mission is to publish peer-reviewed electronic works based on or responding to Ulmerian analyses of culture, we welcome works with other theoretical foundations. 

All contributions will be subject to a double-blind peer review process, excluding reviews, reports, artwork, and interviews, which are solicited by the editors.  TE does accept unsolicited reviews, and interested parties should contact the editors directly before submitting work.  Accepted contributions will be prepared for web presentation in conjunction with the editors.  If you're interested in submitting work to a forthcoming issue of TE, please check out our latest Call for Papers.


On Formatting

At Textshop Experiments, we acknowledge and value that not all submissions can fit so easily into the following standards.  Note that we, the editors, also serve as consultants and designers on accepted work, and we hope to best serve you and your work.  Below are some general guidelines to assist authors and to help facilitate our submission and review process.

(1)  Please send the writing as a doc or docx file.  Works should be sent in MLA format and should include a Works Cited or Consulted page.

(2)  For images, please save them as numbers (based on the order in which they appear in the text).  In the text, you can identify placement with a simple bracket (e.g., [Image 1], [Image 2], etc.). If you wish to display a caption please label appropriately in the text, below the identifying bracket. Images should be saved as jpeg and can simply attached to the (or a subsequent) email, if space allows.

(3)  Movies should be sent as .mov files (720p or higher) and Audio as .mp3.

(4)  For other situations and technical needs (special coding/mark-up, links, curation, etc.), please contact us, and we will work with you on making your project best meet your vision and our mission, platform and readership.

(5)  Sharing on the Cloud: If files are too large, they can be sent via links to GoogleDrive or other cloud storage platforms (such as,, or HiDrive).

Please note that we adhere to the Creative Commons License.  Whenever possible, we try to use free, open access platforms to store and share your work.  Creators share responsibility to store their files appropriately (for posterity) and agree that they hold or have obtained the rights to use work under copyright.

All work and links may be sent to
