Press Release July 2012

Steve Ince Joins The Writers’ Guild

EAST YORKSHIRE, UK (July 26th, 2012):

Steve Ince, writer and game designer, is pleased to announce that he is now a member of The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain.

Ince, who has nearly 20 years’ experience in game development, believes such a move is important, not only to enhance the growing maturity with which game writing is being approached, but also as a way of contributing to how such important organisations view game writing and game writers.  The Guild has been incredibly supportive of game writing in recent years, particularly with the inclusion of a specific game writing category in their annual awards.

Being a part of a wider development of game writing is important for all game writers and others should consider joining, too.


This year has also seen Ince gain representation from SMART Talent and is represented by Kelly Marshall.  Ince has found working with an experienced agent to be a refreshing development in his career.


For those wishing to use Ince’s writing services, discuss press matters or speaking engagements, he can be contacted via e-mail – – or through the SMART Talent agency on +44 (0)1843 844863.

Details of Ince’s experience and services can be found on his website:

Ince is also attending this year’s Gamescom event and is available for both press and business meetings.
