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.
Poems by Joan Naviyuk Kane & Ghassan Zaqtan
Do you see an overlap between the act of translation and the act of responding visually to a piece of literature?
How does translation fit into your creative life?
Meet The Collaborators:
Poet Joan Naviyuk Kane is author of The Cormorant Hunter's Wife, for which she received a 2009 Whiting Writers' Award, and Hypboreal (Pitt Poetry Series), winner of the 2012 Donald Hall Prize from AWP.
Artist Lisa Sette is a biologist living on Cape Cod who loves the intersection of art and science.
Palestinian poet Ghassan Zaqtan is the author of ten collections of poetry, most recently Like a Straw Bird It Follows Me. He is also a novelist and editor.

Artist Douglas Culhane works in sculpture and drawing. He has exhibited in New York and New England. See more of his work at www.douglasculhane.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.
