The Collective Story titled “No, the Future” from the contributors at the Downtown Block Party 2014

Big BookOn Saturday (8/16) at the Downtown Block Party, Creative Colloquy opened a big book and asked everyone who was interested to add a line to our story. There were simple rules:

– Add one line or two
– No hate, profanity, or sexually suggestive themes
– Published Monday 8/18

After that it was a free for all. The contributors were only given the previous page (approx. 5 lines) to work from before adding their own.

Contributors ranged in age from 4 to 70. They were at all levels of writing skills, and equally at all levels of imagination. This is what (roughly) 75 Downtown Block Party patrons came up with.
