There is a push towards deepening your writing to address larger societal issues. You can introduce topics involving compassion, agriculture/food, access to technology, justice and other ethical issues. Write drama involving tension between the individual and the society. How do your characters affect their world, and vice versa? Don’t write theory, write emotion. For example: How does that new road affect that one family’s home? How are they harmed? Do they fight back? Write about the question of whether peace comes through confronting problems head-on, or ignoring them.
