    Writer and Editor

    United Kingdom - Last active: 11 days ago - Portfolio: 4

    I am a passionate writer with 12 years’ experience in the industry, writing for various print and online media, both here in England and overseas in America, South East Asia and China. For the past 3 years I have been working as a published writer and copywriter gaining experience writing in different styles for numerous target audiences on topics such as fantasy, mythology and alternate history. Working as a freelance writer I have had to use my initiative to source projects and contacts. Freelancing has required me to have excellent organisational and multi-tasking skills to successfully manage multiple assignments and meet deadlines. My focus and excellent time management skills enable me to work independently without distraction. I have had an abundance of experience sourcing and taking accompanying images for articles as well as audio and video files for online platforms. Working in online media as well as managing my own blog, I have also gained basic HTML knowledge.

    Harald Hagen

    Fiction Writer / Games and Prose

    United Kingdom - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

    For 3 years, I've written for indie games which have jointly been featured in a tech publication, funded by a successful Kickstarter, and granted two awards. My goal is simple: provide great stories to great projects. I trained in the brevity and detail of short fiction while earning a BFA in game development. This has equipped me with a strong skillset in creating narratives, characters, worlds, and dialogue for both static and interactive media. What I offer a team is someone who understands the challenges of game writing because it is a lifelong passion, someone who welcomes frequent revision because he knows that the project will be stronger for it, and someone who values collaborative development because it betters him as a writer. Whether you're looking for new content, or if you already have certain aspects planned out, or even if you just need that last level of polish, I'm eager to help you tell the story you want to tell. So let's work together on something great.
