Title: Write for Us!
Post by: Jubal on October 17, 2017, 11:13:30 PM
Write for Exilian Articles

Exilian Articles needs YOU! We're always looking for more volunteer contributors to our regular weekly posts, the more the merrier.

We're especially looking for articles on the following areas:
Of course, having a read of what's already been posted (https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=246.0) is probably the best starting point for seeing the sort of tone and articles we want to get! No particular prior experience of writing is needed, and we're happy to provide support with proofreading, so if you're a creator who's never done article writing before then there's no need to be shy about coming forward. Article writing can be a great thing to practice and a good way to engage new audiences with what you're doing.

Exilian Articles is here to support independent creative work and links between that and other arts/academic areas. As such, submissions should ideally be in a public-facing style rather than being academic essays, and we encourage writers to think about what parts of their work may be of interest to other creators and designers, be that useful tips from current creators on design work, or historians highlighting material culture or story-focussed elements that may be interesting for game developers, and so on. Creative submissions are welcome on occasionbut are not the focus of this section, and we encourage people to share their creative work in The Storytellers' Hall (https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=64.0) (poems and stories) or The Artisans' Guilds (https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=61.0) (music, drama, art, comics).

It should also be noted here that whilst we will accept some pitches of this type, we try and avoid having too many posts relating to major fandoms, as we're particularly here to support the obscure, unusual, unknown and unexpected and to give creators a chance to introduce people to their own settings!

If you have any queries related to this, or to the submission guidelines below, please post in this thread and we'll be happy to answer.
