About Tinker Taylor Publications

What is Maytaway Quarterly?
Maytaway Quarterly is a gaming magazine from Tinker Taylor Publications written exclusively by Indigenous authors, critics, and game designers across the globe. Issues include art, theory, criticism, and interviews about board games, card games, sports, ttrpgs, and video games with the goal of highlighting the diversity of voices and perspectives from Indigenous gaming communities around the world. 

Why should I subscribe?
Indigenous voices are often locked within our own communities, and usually need to either conform to the dominant models of game design and storytelling when working for non-Indigenous agencies. This leaves a hole in the global gaming scene where Indigenous knowledge and perspectives on power and play should be, and we're all missing out because of it. Maytaway Quarterly imagines a landscape where the dominant global ideologies around sport and gaming is informed by, and made more whole through the interweaving of contemporary Indigenous knowledges and traditions in play and design.

What can I expect in an issue?
Maytaway is interested in publishing interviews, reviews, essays, critical analyses, thinkpieces, and short games from Indigenous folks in the sport and gaming industry. We're especially interested in highlighting emerging independent designers in the work we publish.

How do I contribute?
If you are an Indigenous person in the sport and gaming scene who wants to publish in Maytaway, send your pitch to [email protected]. Maytaway Quarterly pays all of our contributors for their work upon publication. Click here to see our submission guidelines.
Goals
$144 of $300 per issue
At $300 per issue, Maytaway Quarterly becomes self-sustaining, with the income generated from subscriptions going directly to paying our contributors for their writing.

Maarsi, mii naamii!
