RPG newsletterDicegeeks reached the first Patreon goal! Thank you to my awesome patrons. So, the monthly RPG newsletter will now be open for submissions.

If you are not subscribed to the newsletter, please do so now: Dicegeeks Monthly Newsletter.

My intention at first was to have submissions only open to patrons. However, in order to provide the best possible RPG newsletter to my audience, I’ve decided to open submissions to anyone.

But patrons will always have priority when submitting material. If you are interested in submitting something, here are the guidelines.

Submission Guidelines

  • RPG reviews

Word Count

An article should be at least three hundred words to a maximum of three thousand. If you have something longer, please email before submitting it.

Rejections

If an article is rejected, I will try to let the author know. However, that is not guaranteed. Also, I cannot provide feedback. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s that I am the only one running this show.

Common reasons an article will be rejected:

  • Poor spelling and/or grammatical errors
  • Off-topic or no relation to RPGs
  • Contains unacceptable material
  • Guidelines not followed

Resubmission is certainly welcome as long as revisions have been made.

Acceptance

If an article is accepted, I will notify the author by email. I wish I could pay for articles. However, at this stage of the newsletter, I cannot. An author will receive a one or two sentence bio with a link to a personal website or social media account.

Also, all rights for the article will remain with the author. The author is granting publishing rights only.

Please note that the RPG newsletter and all published content may at some point be published as a PDF or in the form of a “zine.” Author attribution and links will not be changed.

How to Submit

Please send the article in an email to matt@dicegeeks.com. Please do not send it as an attachment, just copy the text into the email itself. Also, include a one or two sentence bio, written in the third person, with a link to a personal site or social media account.

In the subject line, include “Newsletter Submission.”

If you are a patron, please let me know. You will be moved to the top of the list and given special consideration.

If you have any questions, please email anytime. Just put “Submission Question” in the subject line, so I know to respond quickly.

I can’t wait to read the articles and share them with the Dicegeeks audience!
