Hello, fellow interactive fiction writers! I’ve started an interactive fiction literary magazine, Inky Path.
What is Inky Path?
Inky Path is the first literary magazine that showcases interactive fiction and provides readers with the tools to create their own game. It is about fostering a community of thought and discussion around IF works, seeing pieces for more than their entertainment value, and providing greater exposure of IF to the literary world.
What are you looking for?
We are looking for talented IF writers like yourselves to submit your interactive fiction to the site. There can’t be a literary magazine without submissions, so we welcome everyone to bring forth their best work!
It’s fine if your work is published elsewhere. You can also submit excerpts or the beginnings of pieces if you want. We welcome pieces of all lengths, types, and flavors. Bring us your best hypertext historical fiction, or parser-based paranormal romance. Or get even more experimental and send in some multimedia medley that defies all convention or classification. Have fun with it.
Check out the submission guidelines for more info on submitting. We are accepting year-round.
NOTE: We are also currently looking for more readers and graphic designers to help staff the magazine. Click here if you would like to know more about becoming part of the staff.
How can I help?
Since this is a relatively new publication, please, spread the word! Even if you are not personally interested in submitting, pass on the info to someone you know would love to. Since this really is the first of its kind, I’m hoping that it will succeed–I think it’s something that the IF community has needed for a long time.
If you want to help fund the project, we also accept donations.
Thanks everyone! Please submit your work and share with friends! For questions, comments, etc. you can reply here or email the mag at inkypath[AT]gmail.com.
