Hullo – I’ve been offline for a few days.
Great idea to have a meetup. As Robin says, we tend to meet IF people 400 miles away. I have been toying with the idea of starting some kind of interactive writers’ workshop up here; IGDA is set up across the central belt, moving between Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, and that seems to work well. Pretty sure one or two of their regulars would take an interest.
The other interactive writer I know up here is Tom Knights (@tjknights), who did Saga of the North Wind for Choice of Games and is Glasgow-based. Graham Robertson (@onehandhighfive) also works with Failbetter and Inkle, but has recently relocated across the Atlantic.
I’ve done a few workshops with people who aren’t necessarily part of the IF community, but might be drawn to a meetup if it became a regular thing. I’ll give the thread a mention on Twitter.
How about a first meet in September once the Fringe has abated?
