The New Worlds Project, as a science-fiction play-by-post and creative writing community, is certainly a website which won't attract everyone. Science-fiction appeals only to a certain crowd, and even then it doesn't necessarily mean that they will be interested with New Worlds' particular application of the concept.





"Writers, off course!"
The New Worlds Project is first and foremost a community for writers by writers. The Project is a creative writing community that seeks to break the loneliness one often feels as a writer. The Project offers an active and welcoming community. At the core of our community is an interesting, captivating, and complex story.


"Don't forget role-players!"
The New Worlds Project also is a role-playing game, and many role-players who enjoy play-by-post (play-by-forum) gaming will also find a good home here. We are an active and stable game with several years behind us. Our role-players strive for quality and strive for good fun.


"Schools, teachers, and students!"
We are in the process of operationalising our methods to be applied in a more academic environment. The New Worlds Project's non-profit corporation was created on October 2006 with a mission to raise awareness of play-by-post gaming as a methodology which could be used in academic environments with great success. In the very near future we will be able to provide schools with specialised solutions for their creative writing groups, classes, and projects that will enable them to reap the rewards of our established setting. Visit http://nwproject.org for more information on this.


"A Reader's Delight"
The Project has a wealth of stories, finished and unfinished for readers to read from. Finished novels are available for download and provide a good read in anybody's spare time. Visiting the site can be a fun reading experience indeed.


"Projects for Non-Writing Artists too!"
Whether a graphic artist or a musician, the New Worlds Project also runs supporting project teams who work together to add further dimensions to the science-fiction setting that we work so hard to build.



The previous sections have all highlighted to what extent our science-fiction creative writing community is geared towards the writers. Below is a list of benefits that you can expect to get from being a participant of the New Worlds Project.
