One thought on “EVENT Trope: Writers Festival Second Life

  1. Be nice if this was actually able to be a mixed reality event with ppl interested yet not in geography of Sydney to attend in SL… seeing it’s talking about SL. Seems a lot of talk about SL goes on without involving it. A slurl to troupe would be handy too…very little ref in SL about it.
