Literature Emitting Diodes is a three-platform publishing project. From July 2015 to July 2016, we accepted open submissions for literary work under 500 words to present on a scrolling LED display. Each month, one piece was selected and the display was hosted at a different Chicago business. Once an installation had run its course, the piece was published on the dedicated LED website and the next publication would commence.
A full archive of the project is maintained on www.ledpublishing.com, including news and links similar projects. The project is ongoing, but will be transitioning to longer, site-specific installations.
The newest iteration of Literature Emitting Diodes is a Columbia, MO competition. Partial Press has partnered with the Columbia Daily Tribune and the Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs to provide a cash prize and, of course, public display of the winning piece at a downtown Columbia business. Details can be found on the LED website, and at the Tribune.
