CONTRIBUTE A PIECE TO AZZA_JONO, THE CITY THAT ELLO BUILT!
a more detailed call for collaboration
It occurs that in previous calls for contributions, I did not lay out exactly wtf Azza_Jono is. So here we go. Ready?
For the working definition of what Azza_Jono is, we started with this:
Twin cities that may be the same organism split in two by a river (and maybe at different times human-made structures) and/or possibly connected still underground or by some corpus callosum like structure. People may pass from one to the other by different means at different times in the city’s history, including trance, mirrors, water, and dreams.
The city is self-aware, though it exerts itself through dreams and reflected images.
Different parts of the city exhibit different exertions, some of which may seem impossible or unlikely.
The city changes throughout its history. Like a biological organism, it has growth and development and had to cope with injury and loss, delays, and so on.
It faces death by drowning, at least at some point in its history.

So here is what we're looking for:
Words describing life in the city or the life of the City(-ies)
Portraits of the established characters or new ones of your own creation
Landscapes of the City herself, at various stages in her development
Gifs of certain scenes from existing stories or new stories you have in mind
Songs about the City, her inhabitants, or any of the storylines. (We already have a National Anthem.)
Typography for both the Azzine language and the Jonovian language. (We already have a bit of asemic writing.)
Fashion design for streetwear, formal wear, military uniforms for any period(s) in the City's history.
Anything else you'd care to contribute!
Use the #azzajono tag to index your contributions and to see what else has been created already.
Mention @ellowrites and @tvansantana for wider distribution, in addition to any other community that is relevant to your piece(s).
Hit me up through my collab button if you want to talk privately about this project or have any questions or ideas.
You can view the compilation in order of contribution (I think) over at Tablo Publishing.
