FREE | PENS DOWN! Write in the Science Fiction World “Parallelia”

May 28, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

PENS DOWN! Write in the Science Fiction World Parallelia
Write in the ‘Parallelia’ Science Fiction fictional world in this flash fiction segment from start to finish.

About this event

Syllble, a sci-fi and fantasy production house based in Los Angeles is opening up it’s Science Fiction world called ‘Parallelia‘ for you to write with others. Syllble is a community where creators come together to build fictional universes to tell their stories.

Synopsis of World:

Parallelia tells of a future world in the year 2087. After a series of unrelenting extreme natural disasters that ravage most of the world, most people across the United States are left homeless. Years pass while they form a new collective called the Earthbound as they move into the abandoned city of Los Angeles and the Bay Area.

As a community focused on maintaining a primal and spiritual connection to earth, they are able to restore some land and remnants of technology to establish live-able conditions and a culture based on energetic connectivity. Meanwhile, the Silicons, a group of hybridized human-android elites operate with alternative intentions. They found a way to digitize themselves as well as physical earth to escape the deteriorating conditions of the planet. They actively build a pixelized parallel reality by usurping land and resources that Earthbounds have christened as sacred modalities of connectivity.

There’s a major and hostile rift between both groups for the survival of humanity for each claim to be that their way is the answer.

Join Syllble Studios and numerous other creatives in the LA area as we make space for our creative minds to write flash stories 100 to 1,000 words in this PENS DOWN Production cycle. If you sleep and breathe storytelling and are ready to take your writing to the next level, this is the group for you. Sign up and surprise yourself with how much forward momentum you can achieve in just a one-hour writing session. Works will be published through Syllble and the best story will be illustrated.
