Steve Ince has been appointed as chair of the video games committee of the The Writers' Guild of Great Britain.
"As a first step in this new position I'd like to invite all eligible game writers to consider joining the Guild," he said.
"Game writers, like most other scribes, can feel a little isolated at times, so being part of an organisation with such a rich history will give you a place in a strong community of creative individuals from every part of the writing spectrum. Previous holders of this position have done a fantastic job to date and I hope I can match that, particularly as there's still a lot to do in respect to what the Guild means for game writers. By joining or becoming part of the discussion, game writers can help give direction in a field that is evolving faster than all others."
The organisation aims to support those writing for books, film, online, radio, theatre, TV and video games.
Ince's work includes Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, editing on The Witcher 2 - Assassins of Kings and Godfire: Rise of Prometheus.
"As a professional game writer I not only want to help shape the direction of writing within games with the work I do, but also be a part of how game writers are perceived by the wider writing community and within the game development industry."
