Interactive Fiction Club on Zoom -- New Opportunities for Kids

Hi, All,
Since 2009, the Pollard Memorial Library in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA has hosted an Interactive Fiction Club for young people, aged ten to seventeen. The club is now entering a new era, with Zoom meetings occurring twice a week, on Thursdays at 4:00 EST (9:00 GMT) and Saturdays at 3:00 EST (8:00 GMT). New members are welcome to join on either the Thursday or Saturday sessions. The club has recently played/read 80 Days. In the past, the club has experienced such diverse works as “Taco Fiction” and “Snack Time.” On occasion, club sessions have offered opportunities to write IF, too. The club’s next meetings will occur on January 11 and 13.

For more information, including Zoom links, please email Brendan Desilets (

Recently, the club has lost its most effective recruiter of student members. If you know any young people who might enjoy IF, please tell them about our club. If you have any connections at a school or youth group, please pass along this cordial invitation and my email, Perhaps, most importantly, please forward this message to any relevant groups that you know of, including Facebook groups, Reddit communities, and your local youth organizations.

Your help will be much appreciated.
