Now Editing Fiction @ Cartridge Lit

This happened a little while ago, but I’m just now finding time to post here: I’ve been selected as a fiction editor for Cartridge Lit, the world’s only online literary journal exclusively devoted to fiction, poetry, and essays about video games and video gaming. The journal was kind enough to publish my lyric essay, “A Horse Draws Near!” last issue.

As an avid gamer since the days of the Atari 2600 and Colecovision, I’m excited to help discover the best new fiction about video games alongside editors-in-chief William Hoffacker, A.A. Balaskovits, and brand new poetry editor Philip Spotswood.

From the journal’s website:

“We want games-inspired lit that takes risks and tempts edges, that sparks and burns. Send us your Uncharted prose poems. Final Fantasy VI flash fiction. Segmented essays on transformation and mutation in games. Chrono Trigger. Donkey Kong. Minecraft. The Last of Us. Games new and old.

We want to showcase the power of what games-inspired literature can do, what it can be. Break our hearts or light our minds afire.

We’re here. Press play. All your games lit are belong to us.”

Submissions are now open!
