2015 WRITE: PEOPLE: SL Enquirer offers aspiring writers a place to show their work.

Why would writers be interested in virtual worlds? 
Fiction writers create virtual worlds in their stories.  They can create virtual worlds that people can look at, walk around in, capture in pictures.  They can meet with other writers have a conversation about their work.  They can write about virtual worlds, have conversations with their readers, get suggestions from their readers, find publishers interested in publishing some of their work, as with the SL Enquirer here.  Why would writers not be interested in virtual worlds?
