The One Humanity Writing Collective Launches Next Phase To Address Our Global Climate Crisis And Seeks Women and Non-Binary Writers and Visual Artists from Brazil, Guatemala, Pacific Islands, California, Louisiana and U.S Caribbean Islands.
The One Humanity Writing Collective, a collaboration between Syllble and The Innovation Station at the U.S. Department of State Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues, pairs women and non-binary creative writers from around the world (specifically, 3 – 9 writers and visual artists from U.S. locations and 3-9 writers and visual artists from international locations) to write science fiction stories inspired by their shared experiences and ideas.
The current members hail from Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Puerto Rico and Hawaii. The next locations will come from California, Louisiana, U.S. Caribbean Islands, Brazil, Guatemala and Pacific Islands.
Participating writers and visual artists will work with the showrunners of the world and create 10 years later in the “One Humanity World.” This will provide the backdrop for their stories. Subsequently, writers within each pair collectively craft short stories in response to monthly writing prompts and Salon discussions inspired by global climate challenges as they meet with some of the worlds leading experts fighting climate and members of the Syllble Brain Trust.
Climate challenges of focus: Drought, Sea Level Rise, Wildfires, Acidification, Severe Storms, Heat Waves
