2019 Haiku Year-in-Review

Posted on • Words by • Art by

The HYIR: It’s a review, it’s a collaborative grab-bag, it’s a panoply of voices and visions… it’s the annual Haiku Year-In-Review (henceforth referred to as HYIR).

The purpose: to celebrate, examine, and honor the past year in poetry and art. The editors of Broadsided Press have come together to offer, in the spirit of the Carrier’s Address, a brief overview of 2019—it is eclectic, non-comprehensive, and heart-led—just as the work of Broadsided Press itself is.

“2018 Haiku Year-in-Review”

The Haiku Year-in-Review: It’s a review, it’s a collaborative grab-bag, it’s a panoply of voices and visions…. it’s the Broadsided Press annual Haiku Year-In-Review (henceforth referred to as the HYIR).

The purpose: to examine, commemorate, and honor the past year in poetry and art. We took inspiration for the HYIR from the tradition of the Carrier’s Address, in which United States newspapers of the 1700s – 1800s would send their subscribers broadsides on the first of the year, ostensibly written by the paper carriers, giving New Year’s wishes, encapsulating the past year’s events, and gently reminding subscribers to thank their underpaid paper-deliverers.

This year, after a hiatus, the editors of Broadsided Press have come together to offer a brief overview of 2018—we hope that 2019’s HYIR is much more celebratory.

“Morning Pastoral”

Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Miller Oberman: … I think form and function in poetry should always go together, and it’s something I strive for, but it doesn’t always come through as clearly as it does here. Artist Bailey Bob Bailey: …The shape was primarily based on material I had had for some time. Color followed. The idea was to make 2 dimensional lines and bend then into 3D space.

Poet Miller Oberman’s first book, a collection of poems and translations called The Unstill Ones, is due out in 2017 from Princeton University Press. Artist Bailey Bob Bailey studied sculpture at Virginia Commonwealth University, He recently had a survey exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum titled CAVE ORE BRIDGE.
