GAMA has asked me to deliver two seminars on freelancing in the adventure games industry at this year’s GAMA Trade Show. For those interested, they are:

Seven Habits of Highly Effective Freelancers
With so much riding on every release, publishers need to choose wisely whenever they outsource projects. Learn the qualities a freelancer should make sure they embody, for themselves and their publishers, as well as qualities publishers should look for in the freelancers they hire.

Advanced Freelancing
For the committed professional who now derives the majority of their income from freelancing in the game industry, there are whole new challenges to consider. Topics of discussion include: effective time and project management, tax planning for the self-employed, handling royalties, and legal recourses for the Freelancer.

Unlike in past years, in which a panel has presented these seminars, I’ve been asked to take on these topics solo this time around. I’m sure I’ll miss the help I had in the past—and not just in the evenings after the exhibit hall closes. I’ll do my best to fill in for those missing few, though, and if you’ll be at the show I hope you’ll attend and learn what you can.
