How do narratives in games differ from traditional narratives arising from the position of a reader or player? How does the act and experience of gaming, their narratives, and mechanics shape the way writers develop their own writing? Join writers Nuraliah Norasid and Adan Jimenez in this talk as they discuss how games inform their creative writing practice.  
  • This programme is suitable for youths and adults.
  • If all slots are taken, please email to be on the waitlist. We will contact you only if a slot becomes available.
