Taking Submissions: Wind Guide You

September 1, 2022

Deadline: September 1st, 2022
Payment: €40 and a contributor’s copy
Theme: Getting lost to find the most intricate and vivid settings, see below for a better explanation

Jacques Yonnet once stated that “an age-old city is like a pond. With its colours and reflections. Its chills and murk. Its ferment, its sorcery, its hidden life.” And the same could be said for the most intoxicating of video games.

Getting truly lost in one means encountering places more vivid than our physical reality. Wind Guide You will be a pixelstruck anthology of enchanted texts devoted to exploring these territories and digital ramblings. We want pieces that talk about the most otherwordly and intense settings of virtual universes. We want your beautiful dérives. We want your utter escapism, your childlike stray in the woods.

But we aim to go beyond mere description. These short incursions must absorb the reader, envelop the way the most lucid video game environments do, with a poetic, complex, evocative prose. The pieces will be accompanied by a pixel art illustration, especially commissioned for each of the selected texts.

Send us your submissions in English or Spanish in a text document (with a limit of 1,500 words) before the 1st of September to submissions[at]sadwrnpress[dot]com. Do not include absolutely any personal or professional info along with your submission. Payment consists of €40/text and a complimentary copy of the zine.
