HG Safari, week 119 Nara Nook
the writers colony on the hypergrid.

HG Safari gathers weekly to visit virtual places on the hypergrid.   This week, we visited the writers colony on Nara Nook.    A place where writers get together to talk about writing, the Future of Fiction, and to work on the development of immersive fiction.
