Manawaker Studio's first call for submissions is for a poetry anthology.

"Dangerous to go Alone!" will be a collection of poetry and art inspired by video games and video games culture, curated and edited by yours truly.

If you are a gamer who is also a poet or visual artist (or if you know one who might be interested), check out the submission guidelines here.

This is going to be a fun project, and I'll be stoked if some of my Icrontic friends get involved.

    I'll contribute a thing or two. I'm not professional, but I do enough writing that I'd call myself a mediocre writer.

    I don’t care for the school pride

    My grades they do fall

    I hide in the hall

    It’s my ass my mom will Ride

    ...and here's some TF2 set to the styling of Jack and Jill.

    Spies they do frustrate me still

    While friends close in for the kill

    From the ground I dodge around

    And the sniper blows my head off

    Obviously not mine, but I would pay for a painting of this:

  • edited April 2014

    To Eliza Masters wife of the mighty Ken,

    Never do you fret when he practices a HADOUKEN!,

    Many months pregnant with his first child,

    Never would you stop Ken from getting a little wild,

    For your warrior Ken has a fighters heart,

    You've surely known that from the very start,

    When the time comes for an unsanctioned illegal brawl,

    You just say, Honey, its okay go ahead, beat them all!,

    So to you Eliza, all men owe this debt of gratitude,

    For standing by your man, and not acting like a prude.
