Submission + - Interactive Fiction Writing Month (instamatique.com)

vyrus128 writes: "Everybody, geek or not, has a game they've always wanted to write; starting this Sunday you'll get your chance. Interactive Fiction Writing Month is exactly what it sounds like: a month-long shared journey in learning to write IF, much in the spirit of NaNoWriMo. It will run from February 15 to March 15 this year, and no experience is required: the first week will be spent learning to code in Inform, an interactive-fiction language designed to be easy for programmers and nonprogrammers alike. If you want to stay up to date on the festivities, you can also follow the IF Month blog."
