Welcome to The NEXT
Hypertext novels. Twine stories. Kinetic poetry. Interactive Fiction. Generative literature. Historical recordings of electronic literature performances, interviews, and readings. Artists' and scholars' papers and essays. These are just some of the archives found among the over 30 collections of 2500 works of born-digital literary art and other forms of media at the Electronic Literature Organization's The NEXT.
Envisioned as a combination museum, library, and preservation space, The NEXT maintains and makes its archives accessible for the next generation and responds to the growing need for open-access, travel-free cultural and research experiences for today's public and scholars.
