Want to dive into working in games, but not sure where to start? While it may take a bit of searching, there are opportunities out there for those that want to start an RPG or video game writing career.
To start your RPG journey, it may be a good idea to collaborate with friends, or write and release some things yourself. After you’ve built up experience, put together a portfolio website and a CV of your projects.
If you want to build up experience without taking on huge projects, try a freelancing website like Upwork. They currently have a diverse offering of RPG related jobs (from video games to art work). Maintaining a good score and reputation on websites like these show employers you can meet deadlines.
