Interested in how games get written? Thinking about writing games as a career? Then why not drop into either or both of two daily informal workshop sessions covering all aspects of game writing, including but not restricted to:

- What Game Writers Actually Do: the different roles on the different sizes and shapes of project.
- Writing Pitches for publishers and developers.
- Writing concept docs for artists, level designers, audio designers and coders.
- Writing actable scripts for actors: scripts for voice Over, Motion Capture and CGI cinematics.
- Exposition, Exposition, Exposition: how to inform players without boring them.
- How to get a job: (including the perfect writer's CV)
- The Difference between writing for film/TV/radio and Games: when getting better at screenwriting makes you worse.
- Why stuff ends up clichéed.
- Narrative v Interaction: Explicit/Implicit and environmental
narrative, including when NOT to explain
- Directing actors for Voice Over and Motion Capture sessions.
- What game scripts look like.

What do you need to take part? A pen, and your ideas. There'll be writing exercises you can complete during the sessions, or you can return to later sessions for feedback.
