Description

Bridging The Gap For Writers of Film, Games, Books, Comics and VR.

Who should attend?

Do you write or want to write for film, games, books, comics or VR? And if so could you ramp up your game? Do you want the ability to move from one to the other or write for more than one genre?

Or are you just getting started? Do you have a brilliant novel brewing? Can’t get those crazy game characters out of your head? Spend your days dreaming about scripts or comic characters?

Is it time to become the creative director of your writing career, leave the day job behind for good?

If the answer is YES to ANY of the above, then WRITERS GAME is the event for you.


Please note: Focused workshops form the majority of our event and so spaces are limited.


Why attend?

WRITERS GAME is a weekend of Masterclass and Networking, designed to not only help you master the art of writing great narratives that capture the imagination, but how to develop and run a sustainable creative enterprise.

Expect...

  • Morning plenary sessions with instruction on: How to brand yourself as a writer, to launch and grow successful writer enterprises: Focused story techniques from some of the world's best storytellers who have sold millions of books, founded companies with directors renowned for series such as Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul and working with studios such as HBO & Disney and Marvel.
  • Afternoon breakaway sessions: Our Game Narrative Instructors will lead you through 9 hours of workshops. They are two of the world’s most successful creatives who have worked on AAA MMOs to indie mobile games and others such as Game Of Thrones Ascent, STAR WARS and Star Trek. Our Filmmakers and Novelists will cut through to the bone and give you real tools to use to create your million dollar concept. For Comics, Graphic Book Creators will take you on two afternoon workshops, with real usable systems and insights on graphic book creation.

What sets WRITERS GAME apart?

As the media landscape evolves and overlaps, the opportunities for creative and passionate writers to dominate in all these entertainment industries are huge. We want attendees to not only learn how to excel in their chosen writing field, but also how to bridge the gap between the film, game, book, comic and VR industries.

Our Speakers/Instructors include:

Now in her sixth year as Lead Narrative Designer for Disruptor Beam, Jessica uses lessons learned from creating both expansive cinematic experiences and single string quest intros to inform narrative design for story-driven mobile games such as The Walking Dead: March to War, Star Trek Timelines, and Game of Thrones Ascent.
