February 29 is the next London IF Meetup. We’ll be playing and discussing games with trans protagonists.
March 5, “Game Over,” the radio play I wrote about indie game development, is being rebroadcast by BBC Radio 4 at 14.15 (or 2:15 PM, for those of us still keeping time in the US fashion). This is a chance to catch it if you didn’t hear it the first time around and you’re interested. Sometimes the Radio 4 website also hosts the programs from that month for streaming.
March 7 is the next meeting of the SF Bay Interactive Fiction Meetup.
NarraScope organizers will be May 29-31, in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois.
Podcasts, Articles, Videos, etc

If you plan to enter Spring Thing 2020, you have until March 1, 2020 to declare your intent to enter. Spring Thing is a long-running competition for interactive fiction that welcomes longer games than IF Comp can accommodate, and features a “back garden” section for games that are unfinished, commercial, experimental, or where the author just wants to opt out of the competitive aspect of the competition. The games themselves will be due March 29.
