Is it better to work in-house or be a freelancer? Do film and comic script writers have the advantage of getting game writing gigs over novelists? How do companies treat newer writers and narrative designers? Especially for individuals with a little experience and those who are looking to break in, this session encourages participants to ask veteran writers and designers urgent questions that don't have definitive answers in manuals or on the web. From finding the right gig to leading writers and improving team dynamics, no question about the business of game writing is off limits.
