Good Games Writing is proud to announce the third annual Pitch Jam to take place August 15 to August 16, 2015.
Are you a freelance writer looking to receive comprehensive feedback on your pitching skills? We’re assembling an expert panel of professionals (editors, freelancers, and more!) to give you a guaranteed critical evaluation in the name of building your overall skillset, but only if you submit your pitch on time. Last Pitch Jam, we critiqued a large number of pitches, and given the success of previous applicants, we anticipate a very large turnout this year.
That said, you absolutely must RSVP in advance to #PitchJam so we can gauge the number of participants. Got a feature explaining the connection between Gwent and tarot cards, a profile on an indie developer with the next big hit, or a ‘listicle’ on the best Splatoon loadouts? Hit. Us. Up. RSVP will be up starting August 1st.
As long as you submit your pitch within the 72 hour window of the event you will receive feedback on it. Simple, right? So don’t miss a great opportunity to learn from and connect with accomplished professionals! Games writing should celebrate self-education and professional development of new voices, and #PitchJam is here to make that happen.
