Leigh Alexander is one of the most sought-after freelancers in the
games biz – appearing in Gamasutra, Paste, The Escapist, Variety, and Wired, as well as her own personal blog, SexyVideoGameland. We here at Hardcasual tried to channel our jealousy into productivity, and asked her to give us her take on the industry, the media, and the games she loves. And maybe even a pointer or two.
To our surprise, she accepted.
So we bought a tape recorder, a couple of pens and a notepad, looked over our high school journalism books, and vowed to make this a success.
Lucky for us, Leigh Alexander’s really good at interviews. So much so, we’ve divided her’s into three parts, which we’ll post over the next week. First, we discuss her pre-blogging careers, her relationship with theatre, and how she feels about being a female writer in what many consider a male dominated industry.
