Discover How Video Games Are Written at the Dublin Writers Festival
About time!

The Dublin Writer's Festival kicks off tomorrow the 17th of May and runs until the 25th. Founded in 1998, it's Ireland's top literary event which brings together writers from around the world in s series of talks, debates, signings and more.

There are also workshops for budding writers, creative showcases, movie screenings and more - and this year video games are also getting in on the act.

On Saturday the 17th of May at Dublin Castle, Antony Johnston and Rob Morgan will be settling to talk about their slightly unusual trade. They're video game writers of some note - Antony has worked on a couple of the Dead Space games as one of the chief writers, also contributing to the novelisations. And Rob was instrumental in constructing the Harry Potter-lite worlds of Wonderbook: Book of Spells.

If you ever wondered exactly how the story for something as complex as a video game is created, and how you even start to imagine what a plot for a 20 hour game looks like, you should head over to this unique cultural event.

Tickets start at €8 and you can get more information here.

Do check out the rest of the events planned for the Dublin Writers Fest.
