Publisher’s description: We publish modern Americana in the form of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, interview, art, & criticism. Digital Americana was the first literary magazine made for the iPad and is now also available on the iPhone and in print.
Our acclaimed iPad app features a custom redaction tool that enables readers to generate their own erasure poetry instantly. We seek to continually mix the literary arts and American culture with a state-of-the-art publishing mindset.
We encourage contributions from emerging and practiced writers, but mostly we are looking for material that will continue an ongoing dialogue—one that discusses & defines a modern American perspective, theme, or experience. We define what digital Americana is, seasonally.
“Digital Americana is living up to its name; it is redefining literary magazines in the digital world and ever enhancing the reading experience . . . With so many online magazines cropping up daily, it is hard to see which ones will survive. But with the places Digital Americana is headed, I think it’ll be around for a while, paving new ways for us to experience literature, new ways to carry it with us wherever we go, new ways to react to it and redact to it.” -Newpages
Winter Ends—2013, the latest from Digital Americana, features original cover designs by contemporary artist Robert Farkas, our first inclusion of a spoken word piece (“A Long Walk Through Belmont” by Lisa Mecham), a self-interview by Lauren Groff, a selection of outstanding fiction & poetry, and more . . .
