For nearly two decades, Broadsided Press has released monthly collaborations of poetry and artwork for readers to enjoy and share by posting far and wide. This Fall 2023 marks the launch of their biannual folio, bringing together multiple collaborations, lesson plans for teachers to use in their classrooms, and book reviews. Each collaborative work is published alongside a conversation between the artist and the writer – perfect for teachers and students of the craft. The Fall 2023 issue features eight collaborations: Poet Darren Demaree/Artist David Bernardy; Poet Alica Mteuzi/Artist Donna R. Charging; Poet Michelle Whitstone/Artist Regin Igloria; Poet Rose Strode/Artist JoAnne McFarland; Poet Nicelle Davis/Artist Michele L’Heureux; Poet Rajiv Mohibir/Artist Janice Redman; Poet Geffrey Davis/Artist Daniel Esquivia Zapata; and Poet Tomas Nieto/Artist Kevin Morrow.

Magazine Stand :: Broadsided Press – June 2023

Broadsided Press June 2023 image

Founded in 2005, the mission of Broadsided Press was “putting literature and art on the streets” by publishing monthly visual-literary collaborations as free posters for anyone to download, print, and post. This grassroots distribution was thus managed by “Vectors” who share the broadsides in their neighborhoods. June 2023 will be their final monthly installment as they moved instead to biannual portfolios of work. In addition, Broadsided Press offers free lesson plans for using broadsides to teach visual arts, reviews, and summer workshops at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. We’ve always been great fans here of the work of Broadsided Press and hope you’ll take a moment to check out their site.

Fifteen Years of Poetic and Artistic Collaboration, 2005-2020
Provincetown Arts Press, April 2022

Broadsided Press: Fifteen Years of Poetic and Artistic Collaborations, 2005-2020 is an anthology that celebrates Broadsided Press’s mission of “putting literature and art on the streets.” I have always loved the work of this organization, and since its founding, Broadsided has released one beautifully designed, original, letter-sized collaboration of poetry and art (a broadside) each month: a unique collaboration between a visual artist and a writer that is a work of art in itself. These were available for free download each month so that “vectors” could print them and post them with many taking pictures and sharing these on the site. Now, for the first time, more than fifty broadsides selected from over 300 published the past 15 years are presented in a first-ever book form alongside the interviews with artists and poets who collaborated to create them and photographs of the work in public spaces.

Call :: Dear Queer: Letters in Solidarity with LGBTIQ+ Youth

Broadsided Press started Broadsided Responds to show support and solidarity in response to global crises. Dear Queer: Letters in Solidarity with LGBTIQ+ Youth seeks to “stand with the LGBTIQ+ community and all those who call them/us family.” Writers are invited to share “short works that reach out toward any – past or present, self or other – who has needed support, solace, or a sense of being seen and known . . . writing from voices who might wish to speak to their own younger selves (and, by extension, the younger selves of today).” Poems of 30 lines or less or flash prose under 300 words with the title “Letter to my __________” that provide hope, solace, pathways, and a sense of solidarity are welcome through July 4, 2022. There is a $3 VOLUNTARY entry fee, but please see the incredible work this all-volunteer organization has done over the years and support financially if you can.
