Cryo preservation or cryo conservation: A process where biological constructs susceptible to damage are preserved by cooling to very low temperatures. At low enough temperatures, any activity which might cause damage to the biological material is effectively stopped. Cryopreservation methods seek to preserve the breed.
About Year of the Novella program: Over the course of 2018, 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. The volunteers working with our budding novelists were there not so much as tutors but as mentors and peers, offering help and support while writing a novella of their own. This is one of the novellas produced in these workshops.
