In this 2019 GDC talk, Zak Garriss and Tracey John demystify the game writing application process and provide a general understanding of how to break into the field for aspiring game writers and narrative designers.
Together, the pair did great work to demystify the application process and provide aspiring writers a general understanding of how to break into the field.
It was a fantastic talk with plenty of useful advice, so if you didn't have a chance to catch it in person this year, take advantage of the fact that you can now watch it for free via the official GDC YouTube channel!
