[NEW DAY AND TIME] This workshop is for those just beginning their journey writing games. We will take a close look at how writing for games differs from writing for other mediums. We will take a hands-on approach to putting together your first few portfolio pieces, focusing on dialogue, bark sheets, and branching narrative basics. 


Come prepared to participate in writing exercises and peer review.  You must have the free application Twine downloaded and ready to use before class.

This class meets online for a single two-hour session on September 24th from 10 am-12 pm Pacific.
