ABOUT THE EDITORS
Elizabeth Bradfield, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, is the author of Once Removed (Persea, 2015), Approaching Ice (Persea, 2010) and Interpretive Work (Arktoi Books/Red Hen Press, 2008). Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The Atlantic Monthly, Orion and elsewhere (www.ebradfield.com). Liz, who lives on Cape Cod, works as a naturalist, is the current poet-in-residence at Brandeis University, and on the faculty of the low-residency MFA at University of Alaska, Anchorage. Why Broadsided? Well, the idea of literary/visual collaboration has always fired her up. Also, it was pretty hard to put your hands on a literary journal in Anchorage, where she was living when she dreamed up the project. She wants poems out in the world, escaping their perfect-bound covers.

Former Editors & Interns
Lots can happen as a press expands and contracts, as lives become busier and quieter. We want to acknowledge, with deep gratitude, the particpation of those who are not longer active with Broadsided but whose energy and vision were vital to the project:
Mark Temelko, Editor, lives in central New York and works at Ithaca College as part of the staff in the dean's office in the School of Humanities and Sciences. He lives with his wife and two boys in a sprawling old farmhouse. He's currently working on his first manuscript of poems. Mark was a vital part of Broadsided's editorial team from 2006 - 2009.
Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Consulting Editor, is the author of Apocalyptic Swing. She lives in Los Angeles, in reality and virtually. She likes cream in her coffee. Hates to be alone on Sundays. Keeps Shabbat and will cook you the best Greek Easter feast you've ever had. If there is a heaven, she hopes there's at least one woman who can sing Leonard Cohen songs. Gabrielle was Broadsided's Virtual Vector and Tweeter at Large from 2010 - 2012.
Nazila Hafezi, 2012-2013 Intern, was a software engineer for almost fifteen years, but one day she decided to pursue her dream and now she is a first year graduate student in Creative Writing at UMass of Boston. She loves her new life.
