We’re about to embark on our second year of short lit revelry – but, as my Pa always says, you can’t look forward without first looking back. So we asked our friends on Twitter which stories from the past year really stood out to them. And boy did they step up.
Welcome to the first installment of “Stories Everyone,” the crowdsourced storytelling experiment we conceived while brainstorming things to include on our Canzine Toronto 2011 table. The concept is simple: we get a notebook, and write a couple of lines to start off a story. Then we invite visitors to our table to add to the story. When the day is done, we read the accumulated glory and add an ending.
All told, perhaps a dozen people have contributed to this story. Nothing has been censored, and only spelling has been changed. We’ve added MS Paint illustrations to enhance the text.
Oh, and it should be no surprise that this work of our collective creative consciousness is NSFW. You were warned.
