History and Games special themed series

We’re cur­rently accept­ing pitches for our next spe­cial series, themed around History and Games. For more infor­ma­tion, see the Call for arti­cles.

Feature articles

Attention: we are cur­rently closed for one-off fea­ture pitch­ing while we pre­pare a new batch of arti­cles. When we re-open, it will be announced here and on social media.

If you want to write a fea­tured arti­cle please write to editor@ontologicalgeek.com with a pitch of your project. These are the only rules you must fol­low:

1. Be rel­e­vant: we are look­ing for writ­ing on games (any kind you can think of), lit­er­a­ture, poetry, comics, film, music, and par­tic­u­larly inter­sec­tions of those. In short, any­thing con­nected to (the study of) pop­u­lar cul­ture.

2. Be inter­est­ing: we are look­ing for thought­ful reflec­tions on the deeper sig­nif­i­cance of the works in ques­tion, and the ways in which they inter­act with other works or cul­tural forms.

3. Pitch your idea in approx. 250 words.

4. If pos­si­ble, and if you haven’t writ­ten for us before, send us a cou­ple of writ­ing sam­ples.

We pay for fea­ture arti­cles accord­ing to the sys­tem described in our Patreon com­mu­nity fund­ing page (i.e. a fixed share of the rev­enue in your month of pub­li­ca­tion, with a min­i­mum of $25, pro­vided we are cur­rently over our min­i­mum fund­ing goal).
