My article “The friends that game together: A folkloric expansion of textual poaching to genre farming for socialization in tabletop role-playing games” will go live tomorrow along with the second issue of the peer-reviewed journal Transformative Works and Cultures. It is an adapted and refined version of a chapter from my M.A. thesis on tabletop role-playing games.
I’m excited to be a part of the TWC (the publishing wing of the Organization for Transformative Works, a non-profit dedicated to the study, support, and recognition of transformative fan works (including fan fiction, fan art, fan vids, etc.). Please take a look at the whole issue, as well as their first issue from last year.
