In 2017, we began inviting former contributors to serve as guest editors at Broadsided Press. We wanted to introduce new voices and visions to our editorial process. The energy and insight each have brought have greatly enriched the conversations we’ve built.
Please join us in welcoming our Fall 2019 guest editor, Chanda Feldman. She will join the team in reading submissions and selecting works for publication. We are eager and grateful to see what her vision brings to Broadsided Press.
