Members of the Editorial Board will also be hosting workshops at their host institutions (the University of Glasgow, University of Sydney and the University of Central Florida) in order to support authors working on submissions to this special issue. An online workshop will also be run for the benefit of authors unable to attend local events. The workshops are intended for students of all levels, from undergraduate to Ph.D. Details of workshop arrangements will be posted on the journal’s Facebook Group.

Press Start is an open access, peer-reviewed student journal led and fed by students. Press Start publishes the best undergraduate and postgraduate research, essays and dissertations from across the multidisciplinary subject of Game Studies.
