What is WRITERS GAME?
A series of live masterclass events with industry leaders who not only love what they do but love to share their secrets to success.
Who should attend?
Do you write or want to write for film, games, books, comics or VR? And if so could you ramp up your game? Do you want the ability to move from one to the other or write for more than one genre?
Or are you just getting started? Do you have a brilliant novel brewing? Can’t get those crazy game characters out of your head? Spend your days dreaming about scripts or comic characters?
Is it time to become the creative director of your writing career, leave the day job behind for good?
If the answer is YES to ANY of the above, then WRITERS GAME is the event for you.
WRITERS GAME is a weekend of Masterclass and Networking, designed to not only help you master the art of writing great narratives that capture the imagination, but how to develop and run a sustainable creative enterprise.
Morning plenary sessions:
How to brand yourself as a writer, to launch and grow successful writer enterprises. Focused story techniques from some of the world’s best storytellers who have sold millions of books, founded companies with directors renowned for series such as Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul and working with studios such as HBO & Disney and Marvel.
Afternoon breakaway sessions:
Our Game Narrative Instructors will lead you through 9 hours of workshops. They are two of the world’s most successful creatives who have worked on AAA MMOs to indie mobile games and others such as Game Of Thrones Ascent, STAR WARS and Star Trek. Our Filmmakers and Novelists will cut through to the bone and give you real tools to use to create your million dollar concept. For Comics, Comic Book Creators will take you on two afternoon workshops, with real usable systems and insights on graphic book creation.
CRAFTING YOUR STORY
“As a writer, I created WRITERS GAME to help others bypass much of the long and expensive learning curve. I wanted to create an event I wish I’d had access to when starting out. To do that I equated it to my job as an Airline Pilot, if we as crew got there safely, then our passengers would too. So I created an event where if the speakers would learn from each other, then our attendees would too!
Now we are a team of experienced creatives and business people, working with industry leaders.
Our mission includes showing how to create bestselling concepts for each of the above industries, what the difference is between them and how to move from one to the other. But also, we aim to show writers, experienced and new how to become a creative hub, a writing entrepreneur. I look forward to seeing you at our events or using our upcoming online courses.” – Ray Ronan.
If I write for one industry, I can’t write for another, right?
Wrong. Our writers cross all fields. Our game designers, for example Toiya Kristen Finley and Jessica Sliwinski are also published authors. At WRITERS GAME you’ll be shown what it takes to do both and more.
What will I learn at WRITERS GAME?
There are elements that every winning concept MUST have. The best games, screenplays and novels all possess similar traits. Our live masterclasses will help you command these skills in your writing.
Making media more inclusive
The WRITERS GAME team and our speakers are a very distinct group of people. This isn’t by design, but simply by the natural laws of connection.
We want to encourage diversity in the media. How? By enabling gifted and driven writers to succeed, no matter what their background, race or gender.
We are reserving sponsored places and are actively seeking sponsorship from companies who wish to assist us with those as well as helping women, minorities and those kept on the fringes by place, race or circumstance. If you are interested in sponsoring those places, please contact us at email@example.com
The creative industries can only evolve by welcoming more diverse creatives into the game.
