Interactive Writing with Texture: Valentine's Edition!

Calling game developers, writers, poets, translators, graphic novelists, and written word enthusiasts: How do you write for interactivity? The more you’re telling the story, the less agency the player has, and the more agency the player has, the less you’re controlling the plot. The best games manage to strike a balance that is pretty magical. Also magical: for this special workshop, participants will be invited to write a private interactive letter to their beloved, real or imagined!

Join award winning game writer and novelist Jim Munroe to explore this dark art using his tool for interactive writing, Texture Writer. Participants of this workshop will explore the tools available for interactive writing, learn some principles of mixing writing and interactivity, and get some hands-on experience creating their own work.
