DC-based painter Sam Gilliam changed the Color Field game when he took his canvases off stretchers to create his famous draped paintings. Similarly, we'll imagine new worlds as writers, taking inspiration from Gilliam's "Relative" (1968). Worldbuilding is a vital component of all genres of writing, from historical fiction to contemporary realism to fantastical stories of the future, so everyone is welcome to come build their own new universes.
