National Wonder, center for poetry and drama; Provides the means for producing Great Writers.

StrategyEdit

In Brave New World, Great Writers are produced in a new way - not through the generic specialists placed in your cultural buildings (Amphitheater, Opera House, etc.), but solely through the Writers' Guild, a new National Wonder. Just like the Artists' and Musicians' Guilds, it doesn't require building a prerequisite building in all your cities - once you research Drama and Poetry, you can build a Writers' Guild. However, consider well in what city you place it, since it will be the only means of producing this particular type of Great Person.

Historical InfoEdit

Although never as influential as contemporary artists' guilds, guild organizations for writers were created with the advent of the printing press in the Renaissance. Both formal and informal organizations seeking to insure that authors were fairly compensated by printers and booksellers sprang up in a number of European cities. In Shakespeare's London and elsewhere, playwrights banded together to protect their profits from plagiarism and unlicensed performances. Although more trade unions than guilds, today the tradition is carried on by hundreds of organizations around the world, such as the Scriptwriters Guild of Israel, Writers Guild of Great Britain, and the American Authors Guild.
