Pixelles Game Writing Group

typewriter

Identify as a woman? Interested in writing for video games? Trying to build a portfolio, but not sure where to start? The Pixelles Game Writing Group is for you!

The Writing Group is a self-directed learning program for aspiring game writers. We are now accepting applications from women based in or near Montréal who want to build community and explore the possibility of a career in game writing.

NO PROFESSIONAL WRITING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

At the end of this program’s six-month period, you will have produced five polished pieces of game-related writing in English under the guidance of your peers and professional writers.

What to expect:

  • Twice-monthly meetings from December 2018 to May 2019, on Sundays from 2 to 4:30 pm
    (an orientation meeting takes place on November 18th, 2018)
  • A curriculum dedicated to exploring different forms of game writing
    (interactive stories, cutscenes, etc.)
  • Requirement to prepare writing submissions and critiques of others’ submissions for each meeting
  • Feedback on work given in verbal form
  • Critiques from experienced game industry professionals
  • Online support between meetings
  • Optional social events for the group
  • Participation in a showcase-style event upon successful completion of the program (May 2019)

This program is for women-identified individuals who are available to dedicate time to developing their writing practice on an independent basis.
