Our theme for 2016 is Parallel Dimensions. In our ordinary 3-D world, things have height, width, and depth; these dimensions are rarely parallel. In Plotworlds, things can get a bit… different, what with dimensions getting mirrored, duplicated, suplimented, duplicated, distorted, duplicated, and twisted back on themselves. We’re giving you room to play—we’re sure you’ll come up with novel interpretations of parallel.
