What Is This?

Seeds is a zine made by you, about all the awesome ideas you're having, experiments you're making and things you're doing with generative software. It's like a family newsletter for the generative community, published every November, to let people know all the cool stuff everyone has been up to over the past year.

We want to hear about projects you're working on, ideas you're thinking about, stories about your previous PROCJAM entries, guides on how to do something, or just some beautiful screenshots of something you've made. Big or small, serious or silly, digital or physical, whatever label you want to slap on it - we want to see your stuff and put it in Seeds!

How To Take Part

We're looking for pieces of up to 800 words. You don't need to write in English, any language is okay! We would ask you to do your best to keep the language simple and accessible. Think of it like a blog post, rather than a technical report. Try and include some pictures, if you can!

You can write about anything you like! Here are some ideas:

  • something generative you're making
  • what you made for PROCJAM last year
  • what you're planning to make this year
  • an idea you've had
  • something that inspired you
  • a question you can't answer
  • a new technique you've learned

Don't fancy writing? We also want to make beautiful full-page art spreads. Send us 4-5 high-resolution images and we'll lay them out.

There's no need to lay out or format your submission - just send us the images and/or text, and we'll do the rest.


Note: Submissions are closed for now! Watch out for Issue 4 in 2019.

Submissions close on August 31st to give us time to put the zine together. You don't have to have entered PROCJAM to be a part of this, you don't have to work in games, just come and tell us about yourself and be a part of the zine! We can't wait to hear from you.

We're hoping to have the zine ready in PDF form by the time the jam starts (stress permitting!) and an online HTML version for each article shortly afterwards.
