About ‘The wall’ universe:

In the not so distant future, a mammoth segment of the Arctic continent collapses into the ocean and devastates the Philippine islands. Sixteen year old Isabel Mendoza and her grandfather are among a handful of survivors transported to America as “Arctic Refugees.” The technologically advanced society that welcomes them claims to have eradicated all forms of social discrimination. They have done so by creating a homogenous society where everyone looks the same and erecting THE WALL, a monolithic structure that protects its borders from outsiders.

“Overall, I had a great experience writing with Syllble. More than anything else I was interested in experiencing the creative process for fiction writing, since all of my past writing was non-fiction. From creating the characters to the storyline, I was excited to witness how liberating fiction writing could be. Creating a story with a purpose was even more rewarding. Because my past writing has been mostly centered around human rights and social issues I was interested in exploring these ideas through fiction. Syllble provided great tools for a first time fiction writer like myself including feedback. To me, this story reflects many of the most important issues we face. Gun violence, climate change, immigration, privacy, technology and such. Issues we hear a lot about from many differ angles but rarely from the mouths of those who are directly impacted. This story does that. Brings these issues to a personal level in a future figurative world that may actually not be too far from reality”.
