Submissions are open for our third issue until 2020-10-31.

Please read the submission guidelines below very carefully.

Any pieces which do not follow the rules will be rejected.

We especially encourage submissions from people from groups which are underrepresented in tech.

We will not consider work with sexist, racist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise bigoted content.

What we are looking for


Any kind of art where code is the medium. Note that this does not mean art generated from code: the code itself should be the art.

The artistic qualities can be aesthetic, technical, emotional, or whatever else you can come up with.

We want pieces which surprise us and challenge our notions of both code and art. Our definition of “code” is very loose; so long as you have some vague justification, it qualifies.

Any programming language may be used, even esoteric languages or ones which don’t exist yet. You may also mix languages within a piece.

Your code does not need to compile or run. It might not even be text: feel free to submit images.

For some ideas, have a look at our previous issues. You can also look at code {poems}, Source Code Poetry, and ./code –poetry for further inspiration, but do not limit yourself to the styles which are featured in these places.

Submission guidelines:

* Submit at most three pieces by email to

* Each piece must fit on a page of A5 paper. Text will be rendered in Fira Code 10pt unless specified by you.

* Pieces must be submitted in .doc, .docx, .txt, .pdf, or image format. PDF is preferred. Do not send archives. Ideally send only one file with all of your pieces.

* Do not include any identifying information (name, email, etc.) in your submitted document or its filename (this is so that submissions can be judged blind).

* Authors must hold the copyright of the submitted code.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at

We intend to respond to all submissions within a month of the submission deadline.

Authors of selected pieces will be given a contributors copy.
