I am a composer for media and am very interested in learning about how to get involved in writing for games.
While I am looking for work, I really want some knowledge from those who have experience.

Composers, how did you get your first gig?

For someone like myself who has a lot of writing experience, but zero "writing for game" experience, what should I be looking for as a first project?

Thanks in advance.

Hey, check out IGDA writers chapter. I recommend subscribing to their mailing list, posting the same question, and you will be set! Another best method, is you just basically did it. Keep hanging out on forums like this, full of indie gamedevers, and try to join a couple projects. Buildup your portfolio, and you should be set to go!
