2010-02-11: About RPGirl Zine
by Emily

RPG = Role Playing Girl was born from the idea to create a book of essays by women on their experiences playing role playing games. This came together in a slightly different form last year as the 2009 RPG = Role Playing Girl zine.

Meg and I wrote articles for the zine, and we worked with a group of other women active in games to write, edit, illustrate and publish the zine.  It went to GenCon and was sold at Pirate Jenny, an exhibitor booth with game companies primarily peopled by women! We sold out.

The 2009 zines are now available in print and pdf format. We are actively looking for people who would like to be involved in the 2010 edition and will announce the submission guidelines in the beginning of March.
