New Submission Guidelines, Upcoming Interviews, and More!

Now that Inky Path’s first volume is launched it’s time to roll out some big changes.

  • Submission Guidelines — We’re cutting down our guidelines to let you submit your work in the simplest way possible. No more reading through a long list of requirements!
  • Streamlined Editing — We’re improving our editing process to get decisions and comments to author in the quickest way we can.
  • Regular Updates — We’re letting this space become a great location for IF news, musings, and other great content. If you have blog content you want to post/repost here, see the Submissions page for the details.
  • Interviews! — We’re sending out a fresh round of interviews to writers and developers in the IF community. If you might be interested in participating in an interview, drop us a line.

Expect to see some new developments around here in upcoming weeks.

As always, we’re accepting interactive fiction pieces–both new and previously published. Visit the Submissions page for more info.


Release Date Finalized! Also, acceptances…

After spending the last couple of weeks reviewing submissions and writing up comments, I’m pleased to announce that the release date for Volume 1 is Feb. 28! Keep your eyes open for Inky’s Winter Edition!

In other news, the first round of acceptances/rejections went out today. A lot of thought and discussion went into the final decisions, and I think we’re going to have a very strong line-up for Vol. 1.

To those accepted–a hearty congratulations to you! To those rejected–it’s not personal. We’ve had many strong submissions and we hope to see even more excellent work from you and other writers in the future. To those lurking and wondering whether to submit–go for it! We want to see your work. We’ll always provide written feedback as well, so why not go ahead and submit that new project?
