Join Choose Your Own Adventure Authors Tina Connolly and Katherine Factor on May 7th at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:45 pm) at Tabor Space and online to discuss interactive storytelling. This event is part of our Video Game Writing Series and is sponsored by Oregon Film.

If you’re writing for games, novels, or interactive fiction, you may be juggling multiple storylines or working on making your stories more audience-oriented and fun! Join us for this interactive panel where we will explore different techniques for branching your narrative and tracking your work. Bring your questions and examples to explore with these multi-talented, cross-platform authors.
