HvZ: THE BOOKWe are seeking content for a new large format book that will showcase the creativity of the players and game organizers who make HvZ possible.
We are looking for writing and artwork that reflects the history, culture and aesthetic of Humans vs. Zombies overall as well as the unique dynamics of individual games.WRITERS:
Send us your HvZ-inspired writing in the form of essays, nonfiction narratives, short fiction, puzzles and mission storylines, and whatever else you’ve got! We have a growing list of articles we would love to see written if you need ideas, they can be located under the WISHLIST
category. ARTISTS & DESIGNERS:
Send us your HvZ-inspired artwork. We want to see promotional flyers, photography, paintings and drawings, mission props, and whatever else you’ve got! Since we hope that this book will ultimately be something you can be show friends and family members, we need plenty of artwork and photography to make each page visually interesting.
