I spent the last three years writing a complete guide to the Known World for 5th edition. Now it's done.

So am I, Bruce helped me create the book once he warmed to it. But he really doesn't like WOTC so he's not an option sadly.
Try ringing them or door knocking if it's close. Or Twitter and try and get hold of someone who matters. One if Mearls livestreams something like that.

I need to get to some cons, I've got a few podcasts and streams that are waiting to showcase the physical copy once I get it back from the printer.

Halfway through the creation process, I was introduced to the Greek artist Rubus. He sent me two pieces of art to show his skills hoping I would hire him. Just a row of swords and also some coins. I hired him for multiple pieces, and after he told me my original idea of gladiators giving a salute was boring, he instead gave me a masterpiece of gladiatorial combat with 8 combatants mixing it up over a dusty battlefield convinced me to just give him an idea and stand back. This was the chapter art he gave me based on the idea of a lone werebear holding his own against an army of goblins while being judged worthy by a watchful Immortal. I've got more commissions for him but he's becoming quite popular for obvious reasons.

Damn yeah make an effort contacting wizards. Keep bugging them even if they say no lol.

If Goodman Games said print something first it might be a backdoor way in.

This is next level fan effort.

Hey Glen you could also try and email them a link to the file and also ask how will it be possible to take it to the dmsguild. I dont remember Mike Mearls email but they all follow @wizards.com. Maybe mearls@wizards.com

Ask Mike to have a look even if it's a black and white print out.

He can at least kick it upstairs or say hell no.

Good luck with the book. As a long time fan of the setting, I hope you will be able to further this.
They open up the setting I plan to have multiple books detailing the various nations in greater depth. The biggest problem with the setting is it was rife with continuity errors because it was one nation at a time and the authors really didn't communicate with each other. But it's one of the more unique settings and once I finish the known world I can look at the hollow world and the Savage Coast. Did go with the 1000 AC timeline because all the players prefer to get over the second edition timeline
