Using Twine: The Alchemy of Interactive Fiction (Age 12+)

Learn the basics of video game writing through interactive fiction! Using Twine – a free program you can continue to use at home – learn the basics of storytelling for interactive media and practice writing a branching narrative where players can make choices. Run by Rick Stemm, Narrative Director at PikPok, this workshop will focus on hands-on practice, with students writing their own interactive fiction, interspersed with writing tips and Q&A with the instructor. No experience necessary.
