CUNY Student Editions

Open-source, scholarly editions of historical texts, accessibly designed for students. Editions are offered to the public at no cost by a team of CUNY students and faculty.

Open Poetics Series 1

Open Poetics Series 1 is a Litmus Press digital publishing project. The series provides critical editions of lesser-known and out-of-print works of contemporary poetry that were originally published by O Books and The Post-Apollo Press, and are now being managed and distributed by Litmus. Titles in this series incorporate external materials—critical essays, alternate versions, reviews, translations, and archival images—that have been curated by a board of poets and teachers. This project offers a living archival solution to the challenges of visibility and accessibility faced by avant-garde and experimental writing championed by small presses.

American Literature

This is a collection of custom teaching versions of public domain American Literature texts created by instructors at CUNY and available for all as reading texts. We are building similar collections in other fields as faculty add more projects across the disciplines.
