Follow Along

The Pixelles Game Writing Follow-Along is back!

Do you want to hone your game writing skills from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace? The Pixelles Game Writing Follow-Along is for you! It’s open to everyone, anywhere in the world!

Last year, we witnessed an unprecedented amount of interested in our Game Writing Follow-Along program with over 120 participants in French and English! For this new session, our goal is to expand, to provide more support and interaction to all our Follow-Alongers. If you were a Follow-Alonger previously, you’re more than welcome to join us again for this new adventure: the assignments and units have been refreshed this year, so there will be something new for returning participants!

How does the PGW Follow-Along work?

You will receive a writing assignment each month, and after each session of the live group in Montreal, we’ll email you a summary of our meeting. You’ll be able to follow along with our program and write at your own pace. As part of our PGW community, you’ll receive advice, resources and tips about game writing.

This year, we are creating a new Slack channel available to all our Follow-Alongers, where you’ll be able to discuss the theme of the month, ask questions, and share your work with other participants. We greatly encourage people to find groups on Slack to exchange your work with as giving and receiving feedback is an important part of becoming a writer and this is the perfect chance to connect with like-minded writers working towards the same goal.

Online writing sessions will happen once a month(depending on interest) on the same Slack channel: one of our Follow-Along coordinators will be present for a designated amount of time (likely a couple of hours) to help you get past your writing hurdles and answer questions as you work. Depending on the turn out to these events, there could be shared prompts or discussions concerning material previously sent out in emails.

Who can Follow Along?

  • Anyone from anywhere in the world
  • Everyone of all genders, skill levels, and age
  • If you can write fluently in English or in French. You’re also free to write in any other language, but we can’t promise that you’ll find someone to share your work with on the Slack channel.
  • If you want to take your game writing career to the next level!
