Game Writing requires different ways of thinking and different skills than writing in other media. This course is directed at both people who want to take the first step into the expanding professional world of writing for games and for someone who is already working with creative writing in related fields such as storytelling, copywriting or screenwriting. The classes are a balance between theoretical understanding and lots of practical exercises and during the course you will learn how to rethink about writing across different genres and types of games. The course ends with a project where you will produce your own text-based game!
All our teachers are professionals in related industries and also include teachers from our full-time education. The diploma you receive on successful completion of the course is not only a real plus in applying to our full-time games and copywriting courses it’s also a great addition to your CV.
