Final 12 months, I used to be planning to have one other run of Recreation Writing Primer however the pandemic and subsequent lockdown made that not possible. I checked in with my former college students and was delighted to listen to of their successes, video games, awards, job affords, start-ups, and even a pending wedding ceremony between two of them!
PlayCrafting requested me to do a Webinar, which I knew couldn’t be the identical as the favored workshop collection, Recreation Writing Portfolio Exercise. This distant studying Webinar was informational and never that interactive. Nonetheless, from the suggestions I’ve gathered, my college students discovered it very helpful.
There’s simply not many locations to be taught the do’s and do not’s of sport writing portfolios.
