|Overview:||How do newer writers fit into game design and narrative design teams? Are in-house jobs better than freelance work? Do film writers have advantages getting game writing work over novelists? Especially for individuals with little experience and those seeking to break in, this session encourages participants to ask veteran writers and narrative designers questions that don't have definitive answers in manuals or on the web. Anyone working with writers is also encouraged to attend. Whether it's finding the right job, leading writers and improving team dynamics, or establishing rates, no question about the business of game writing is off limits.|
