Upcoming: Games For Change Festival and Game Writing Workshop

Last year, the Games for Learning Summit was only open to a select number of invitees.  This year, it's a full-fledged track at the 13th Annual Games For Change Festival.  There'll be 2 days of panels, presentations, and workshops about game-based learning.  The Games For Change Festival will be held in New York City on June 23-24.

I'm pleased to announce that I will be speaking about the market for educational games on Thursday June 23, 2016 at 2:30 PM.  I feel so thrilled that I will have this opportunity to present research that I did for the Joan Ganz Cooney Center.

If you're a student, you're in luck because for a limited time G4C is offering a special discount for students, a price of $89.  The regular price is $379.  Go here and enter code ST89 if you're interested.

Indie developers can apply for the same discount here.  These will be awarded on a need basis.

And if you'll be sticking around for the weekend, I will be holding a special "social impact games and learning games' edition of the Game Writing Portfolio Workout the following Monday, June 27, 2016 at 6:30 PM at Microsoft NYC.

Register here for early bird tickets of $25.
