2015 will be the 10th anniversary of Broadsided Press. To celebrate, we want to have a presence at the annual AWP conference (held this coming year in Minneapolis). Our goal is to raise $1,000. Can you donate $10, $100, or more? We need your help!
Think of it as web-enhanced grassroots guerilla art.
On the first of every month, a new collaboration is posted for you to download. Free.
Vectors are posting around the world.
We want to put literature and art on the streets. Help us.
Poem by Laura Kasischke
Bsided: When you began this piece, was it color, shape, or some other aspect that you followed? Did that change?
Bsided: If the Broadsided collaboration were a piece of music, what would it be?
Meet The Collaborators:
Poet Laura Kasischke has published eight novels and eight collections of poetry, most recently Space, In Chains, for which she received the National Book Critics Circle Award. She lives in Chelsea, Michigan. This poem first appeared in the New England Review.
Artist Michele L'Heureux is an artist and curator from Waltham, Mass. She is director of the Beard and Weil Galleries at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. She is currently taking a year-long sabbatical to draw and cook throughout the US and Portugal. Check out her work at www.michelelheureux.com.
Broadsided relies on YOU to move this work into the world. As of this month, we've moved all our Vector info onto a Tumblr page—pictures, quotes, inspiration, and the big map (which looks better than ever!).
You don't need to "join" to look or even to share pictures and stories with us and with each other.
Check it out and tell us what you think of Broadsided or about your Vectorizing adventures.
We asked you to help celebrate, examine, and honor the past year in poetry and art. We listed "big topics" from 2014 and asked for your haiku. Via Twitter. Now see the results!
