Games Writing

I've practised writing and narrative design since I was a student, when I would design space opera strategy games and fantastical 3D adventures. I place a high value on narrative design and world-building throughout the design process, and I enjoy working on scripted content - particularly in works of personal narrative and science fiction.

I'm also a practised writer of instructional text, essays and related non-fiction works, primarily outside of games. My work in this area has included tutorials, local history write-ups, and articles - often in complement to my speaking engagements.

I occasionally write about online worlds and game design, games culture and events. I've contributed to online publications including Indie HavenNew World Notes and The Guardian. Most of my event write-ups and design essays are intended for this website, but past writing projects include:
