So you’ve heard about a little thing called #PitchJam this weekend. Here’s all the questions we get answered for you.
WHAT IS #PITCHJAM?
#PitchJam is your chance to get a games media pitch critiqued by industry experts.
These experts give up their time to help out in this event to give meaningful feedback to writers in the one area they are unlikely to ever receive feedback in their writing career.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
During the pitching window–which will be announced and opened on Friday, lasting only 24 hours–you email the designated address with your pitch in the body of an email. Then you wait for feedback to roll in from our experts.
WHAT DOES THIS COST?
Hundreds of hours of work. For you? Nothing.
This is a free event. Organizationally all the work is donated by goodgameswriting.com while the expert panelists volunteer their time.
ARE THESE EXPERTS ANY GOOD?
Yup. Here’s a certainly incomplete list of outlets their work has appeared on: Polygon, Paste, PC Gamer, IGN, GamesRadar, The Escapist, SyFy, Ars Technica, TechRadar, Official Xbox Magazine, ESPN, WIRED, Redbull Esports, Game Informer, PCGamesN, NBC News, Rock Paper Shotgun, Eurogamer, Twinfinite, GamesTM, Mashable, GamesDaily.biz, Nerdist, Waypoint, and others.
ARE THERE LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS?
