Short decription: 

Born Magazine is a quarterly publication that brings together creative writers and interactive artists to create experimental, media-rich literary arts experienced only through the Web.
Born was founded in 1996 in Seattle as an all-volunteer, free publication where writers and designers could collaborate on creative projects. The magazine launched on the Web in 1997 with a focus on editorial design and traditional editorial topics, including essays, film and music reviews, and topical articles. As Web technology continued to evolve, contributing artists began focusing on the connections between literature and visual arts, and experimented with the dynamic relationship between text, cinema, audio, and interactivity. In response, Born redefined its mission in 1998, focusing on collaboration and media-rich interpretations of poetry, short fiction and creative non-fiction, and eventually arrived at its present incarnation. In 2005, Born continued its collaborative evolution with the debut of its first “off-line” collaborative arts project, “Help Wanted: Collaborations in Art.” The exhibit featured eight interactive storytelling installations created by teams of contributors from fields as diverse as poetry, comics, architecture, video, interactive design and programming.
