The Townsfolk

  The Town is a place with many different inhabitants.  Some are people you’ve known all your life.  Some stretch your comprehension to its limit.  They’re all curious to meet you and greet you and . . .
The Townsfolk is a collaboration of drawing and writing, with Bronwyn McIvor’s drawings serving as a starting point for a web of writing by different authors.  Everything is connected, as characters weave in and out of each other’s tales, in varying styles and tones and forms of writing.  Each story is centred on an individual character, which provides a specifically faceted view of the Town.  This is why no two stories treat the Town exactly alike, and details (and structure, and tone, and. . .) may shift from one author to the next, and one story to the next.  Characters who arise in written form may later find themselves illustrated, only to have a new story written about them down the road.  We create like the ouroboros.
