The next issue of Torchlight is coming together but we aren't announcing a projected release date until we have two issues ready to go. The content in the Premiere Issue of Torchlight was mostly from your humble bartender, and that isn't a content workload I can expect to repeatedly hit on a regular basis.
Issue One will have other (well known) contributors aside from me, but further issues will depend on outside contributors for future success.
At the moment we are expecting to pay 5 cents a word for new classes, creatures, NPCs, adventures, locations, articles, and the like. The author retains copyright and the work will be released under the OGL. Torchlight will require exclusive publication rights for 1 year, and the right to reprint in compilations (such as annuals) in the future.
Content should be written for Swords & Wizardry, Swords & Wizardry Light, Swords & Wizardry Continual Light, or White Star.
At the moment we are not commissioning new art but may do so in the near future if / when we have a thematic issue of the zine planned.
Email tenkarsDOTtavern at that gmail thing with "Torchlight" in the subject with your pitches and inquiries.
We want to get Torchlight out on a regular quarterly basis, and this will only happen with your help and contributions.
