The Recovery Hub supports and initiates projects that recover the work of women writers
VANCOUVER – The Marjorie C. Luesebrink Collection, curated by Professor Dene Grigar, director of WSU Vancouver’s Creative Media and Digital Culture program, will be featured online at the Recovery Hub of American Women Writers.

The Recovery Hub supports and initiates projects that recover the work of women writers “by providing digital access to forgotten or neglected texts and/or extending them with network mapping, spatial analysis, multimedia storytelling, innovative contextualization and the distant reading of massive datasets,” according to the organization’s website. The featured collection is permanently held at the Electronic Literature Organization’s exhibition space, The NEXT.
The spotlight on the art of Luesebrink, who publishes under the name M. D. Coverley, is the first that focuses on an author of born-digital narratives. As explained by Kristen Lillvis and Melinda White, who developed the showcase along with Margaret Smith and Jessica Despain:
“Luesebrink is a key figure in born-digital hypertext literature: She has consistently published in the field for more than 30 years, with her early works important examples of the beginning of browser-based storytelling. Luesebrink was the second president and first woman president of the Electronic Literature Organization. She also highlights and collaborates with other women authors. The Marjorie C. Luesebrink Collection builds on the author’s collaborations in its well-curated digital collection of multimedia storytelling. This effort includes 27 works by Luesebrink along with 39 works by other major literary figures, many of whom published art before the Web browser was available to the public.”
The Recovery Hub for American Women Writers publishes new showcases twice each year. The Marjorie C. Luesebrink Collection was developed by the Electronic Literature Lab at WSU Vancouver.
