Immersive Authorship

Are you interested in writing or illustrating?

Are you aged 13 – 19?

Looking to practise your skills with other like-minded people? Perhaps you love fantasy and are looking to explore it further with storytelling and world building? Or maybe you’ve always dreamed about having your work published in a book?

Good news! We are embarking on a quest to write an interactive fantasy-adventure gamebook that will be written and illustrated by young people like you. Our tutors – including published authors and professional artists –  have real industry experience to share with you during our online workshops. You will get to use your own ideas to create something exciting – constructing the characters, settings, and storyline, creating the scenes, deciding the player’s options, and designing enemies to defeat.

But don’t worry if you haven’t written or illustrated before! We are inviting young people of all experiences to join the team and contribute as much or as little as you want. At the end of the project you will see your work printed and published in a real book, which will be yours forever to enjoy over and over. There will also be a fancy book launch event where you will be able to show off your success with friends and family! After that, the book, with your name listed among the authors, will be on sale worldwide through Amazon and we’ll even give a few copies to your school library too. It will also be released as a text-based video game for PC and mobile on all the usual platforms.
