Charis Books and More/Charis Circle says
Are you interested in learning more about Twine (the interactive platform where games and fiction meet?) Our Georgia Tech Game Studio Collaborator, Sarah Schoemann is here to teach even the most novice gamer/writer how to begin creating games with the Twine platform. If participants have their own laptop they should plan to bring it. Charis and GT will work to provide additional laptops for the workshop. If you know you are attending and will need a loaner laptop please email info@chariscircle.org to RSVP.

Sarah Schoemann is the founder of Different Games, an annual conference on inclusivity in games, as well as a doctoral student in Digital Media at Georgia Tech. A researcher, game designer and educational technologist, her work examines the ways accessible media and technology tools can offer new modes of personal expression and social critique while engage with broad issues of equity and social justice, online and off.

This is a Charis Circle Founding the Future of Feminism Program. The suggested donation is $5.

"Although plenty of independent games venture where mainstream games fear to tread, Twine represents something even more radical: the transformation of video games into something that is not only consumed by the masses but also created by them." Laura Hudson, The New York Times Magazine
"The simple beauty of Twine is this: if you can type words and occasionally put brackets around some of those words, you can make a Twine game."Kitty Horrorshow
"If you're interested in making interactive fiction then there's no better place to start than Twine. It's possibly the simplest game making tool available, it will take you mere minutes to get started, and it has a wonderfully simple visual editor."Richard Perrin
And aside from being free, it's really not programming at all — if you can write a story, you can make a Twine game. Anna Anthropy

“Dear Games” is a new collaboration between Charis Circle and the Georgia Tech Game Studio, connecting the practice of feminist game design to the vibrant community of feminist thought at Charis Books and More.
