The toughest part sometimes is simply breaking in. At the point of launching into a career of writing for games, how do you go about doing it? Consider the many types of narrative games players dive into and enjoy. Let's demystify that and provide a starting point for your new journey. How does a writer from industry X transition into the games industry? What advice can be offered by our panelists? The industry has a lot of avenues for entry, and we're excited to put some of them on display.

Must have an AFF Producers, Conference, Weekend, or Lone Star Badge for entry.
