Game Writing for Playwrights is a core storytelling workshop exploring the intersection of games and theatre. The world of gaming is introduced via the creation of individual board games and through the use of an on-line program called Twine to develop video game stories. The participants work purely with narrative (not graphics content) and Twine allows them to structure story in a way that will work for the interactivity of video games exploring the cause and effect of choices in a world with a multiplicity of options.

Subject line: Exploring Practice Intensive with Jill Murray

Instructor:

Jill Murray writes for video games and young adult novels. She won a 2013 Writer’s Guild Award for Excellence in Game Writing and felt nearly as giddy as she does any time a teenage reader tweets at her to say they like one of her books. In the past, Jill has been a blogger, a front end web developer, culture festival pr person, and a theatre student. She is the keeper of the one true secret about how these things are linked together. (The answer involves coffee farms, so you know that’s a long story.)
