The Iowa Review Web (http://research-intermedia.art.uiowa.edu/tirw/vol9n2/) is an online publication featuring electronic literature and experimental writing and art, and has been publishing electronic literature since 1999. Writers interested in having work considered for publication should send a query e-mail with relevant autobiographical information, a brief description of work in general, and information about the work for submission (including, when appropriate, the URL of the work). Send query e-mails to Editor Jon Winet at jon-winet@uiowa.edu.

Analysis: The Iowa Review is a small but stately publication, and includes a very high caliber of writing, frequently including known and established writers. Their website proclaims, though, “Discovering a new and compelling writer, one we’d never heard of before but whose writing comes through to us—that still seems the magic of our work.”
