Immersive Game Lab - Application for Writers
  • *


    Thank you for your interest in the StoryFutures Academy and InGAME Immersive Game Lab. We are looking for experienced writers who may be from any discipline. Prior experience of writing for games is not essential, however, we will look favourably on applicants who have experience of creating interactive work. This could include writing credits on released games titles, self-published work in programs such as Twine or Ink, interactive theatre, interactive film or any other forms of interactive narrative.

    There are a maximum of 12 places for writers and narrative designers. If you have any questions or concerns, then please do not hesitate to contact us at immersive@nfts.co.uk

    Applications will close on 24th February 2020.

    If you are successful, you will be notified by email by 9th March 2020.
