Literature Emitting Diodes

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, including news and links similar projects. The project is ongoing, but will be transitioning to longer, site-specific installations.
