Hi! I’m Andrea Blythe, an award-winning storyteller passionate about crafting meaningful interactive narratives powered by player experience.
With over 6 years of experience writing and publishing stories, poems, and short films, I’ve developed a knack for character voice and dialog. I particularly thrive in collaboration and love to support my fellow creatives in achieving their own success.

What I Can Do for You
Characters & Dialog
Good stories have a beginning, middle, and end. Great stories are driven by character. I can help you shape shape compelling characters, providing a sense of specificity in regards to character voice and dialog.
From fantastical landscapes to apocalyptic wastelands, I can provide descriptions, details, and ephemera to help fill out your imagined worlds.
Story & Gameplay
Ultimately, great games are about great player experiences. I’m here to support you in finding the right balance between story and gameplay according to the unique needs of your project.
My writing and editing experience ranges from the creative to the technical. As an author, I’ve published three poetry chapbooks, as well as numerous fantasy, science fiction, and horror short stories and poems with a character-driven focus. My most recent book is the narrative-heavy Twelve: Poems Inspired by the Brother’s Grim Fairy Tale (Interstellar Flight Press, 2020), which received second place in the 2021 Elgin Awards.
I’ve collaborated on the story development for two short films, including “Firecracker,” which was written, produced, edited, and submitted in under 48 hours. In addition, I am currently collaborating on an independent musical romantic comedy web series, for which I outlined and wrote 12 episodes.
I’ve also worked as an editor both on a literary journal and in journalism. As the managing editor of a technical trade magazine, I have the ability to manage multiple projects throughout the year, including the publication of six print issues and content curation for the magazine’s online news presence and newsletter.
