When Meadow awakens Yedda, the balance of Utopia and Dystopia - the two worlds simultaneously occupying the same space - is altered. In these worlds, traits are embodied. People are confined to a specific label. And Yedda’s powers are discovered. Powers carried by emotion, in their own ways, matching even Meadow’s supernatural abilities. And the veil separating Utopia and Dystopia needs nothing more than a small tug to wither away.
About Year of the Novella program: Over the course of 2019, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at the Story Factory. Their goal was to produce not just a fistful of poems, or a story, or a script, but a fully realised novella. This is one of the 11 novellas produced in these workshops.
