Editing Interactive and Multimedia Fiction
Creative writing—and editing—goes beyond familiar media such as novels and scripts. What is it like to edit a tabletop role-playing guide, a comic collection, or a video game? What skills are needed to work with these types of materials compared to editing more “traditional” forms? And where do these clients live? We’ll get a peek into this world with a virtual panel of editors who specialize in a variety of interactive media.
