We are looking for unpublished works that coordinate print and online components – for instance, poems or collage-works including QR codes, or other bi-modal mechanisms; riddles, puzzles, or cryptograms connected to unlockable material online; aleatory or generative texts with code exposed for manipulation; collaborative or socially mediated works with a print outcome; and (especially) any text that stretches the boundaries of print-digital hybridity.

Special Note: Given the hybridity and complexity of this genre, we may not be able to accept even meritorious submissions if we cannot provide appropriate resources and services to showcase the work. Some criteria to consider for submission: digital work will be accessible at creamcityreview.org; smallest possible file size without distorting the work is requested; color profile used is U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2; and the print journal size is standard digest size on 80lb. matte paper. (Please contact us for any format or medium-specific needs.
