What is sub-Q Magazine?

sub-Q is an interactive magazine for interactive fiction. This 90-second video demonstrates how we work:

Our Mission

We seek to promote all forms of interactive fiction by

  1. Increasing the visibility of IF
  2. Growing the market for short- and long-form works
  3. Supporting the development of open platforms
  4. Compensating content creators

We encourage work from creators of color, creators from the QUILTBAG community, and creators with disabilities. Intersectionality welcome. Internationality welcome.

Our Content

Starting August 4, sub-Q will release a work of interactive fiction every Tuesday. We publish original and reprint works of science fiction, fantasy, horror, weird tales, magic realism, and mash-ups.

We want smart, fun, and unexpected.

Our Business Model

Like a public podcast, we rely on sponsorships and member support. Our survival depends on you.
