826DC: Writing for Gamers
There are plenty of students who are more interested in video games than in writing – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Video games offer an entirely new way to provide and experience narrative. In traditional forms of writing, a lot of the rules are already established – the party’s over. What makes games so compelling is the sense that they often provide of walking into a traditional storytelling experience – but with an added, unfamiliar feeling that you have agency in this world.
In this workshop, students will use the elements and narrative conventions of video games to create stories of their very own.
