Call for Articles on Text and Immersive Media

Posted filed under Featured, News.

The Writing Platform is looking to commission articles of approx 750 to 2,000 words on aspects of the use of text in immersive environments. As a development of our long-term focus on text on screens, we are looking for writers, researchers and practitioners interested in, for example, 3D typography in VR, the use of text for storytelling in the metaverse, textual experiments in AR and live performances that make use of text. While text as a navigation aid has always been present in games, we’re interested in innovative uses of text in games and gaming environments. We are interested in experimentation, personalisation and playfulness with form and content as well as technological innovation.

As always, our attention is on storytelling and poetry. We welcome articles with an international focus.

The articles will be published on The Writing Platform website between November and March 2023.

Your proposed article might fit into one of the following categories; 

Resource: for example, a how-to guide.

Research: for example, a paper, article or overview of a research project from an academic or practitioner perspective.

Experience: for example, an account of an experience that you have experienced or developed.

News: for example, highlighting a new project or opportunity in the field that our readers might not have heard of before.

Projects:  for example, a reflection on a project that you have developed or one that you have been inspired by. 

We are looking for 750 – 2,000 word articles, including 2 to 3 images. We have a small commissioning fund of £100 per article for freelancers. 

To propose an article, email Amy Spencer ( with a 100 word overview of your idea and tell us which category or categories it would best fit into. 

We have a rolling deadline for submissions and would advise you getting in touch ASAP to discuss your proposed article.
