Anne van Barlingen

Anne van Barlingen is a Serious Larp designer, speechwriter, and holds a master's degree in Dutch Discourse Studies. Alongside her partner, Gijs, she designs creative games based on Live Action Learning. For years, she has written speeches for directors and government officials, as well as texts on sustainability and social issues. Crafting a good speech is much like writing a good Serious Larp: guiding your audience, conveying the message, and ensuring the story's structure is sound. So, in a way, the transition from writing to designing was quite logical.
