Welcome to the Nexus!
The Nexus is the artistic complement to the Orions Arm Worldbuilding Group within the Orion's Arm project. Here we breathe artistic life into the hard science framework the worldbuilding group has developed, through stories, poetry, music, or visual art. You don't need to be a mathematician or a scientist to participate; you only need artistic skills and creativity and an interest in the OA setting.
Writers to your marks... set... go!
