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.
Poem by Jericho Brown
Bsided: Did the visual artist refract any element of the poem that made you see the poem differently?
Bsided: What inspires you in this poem?
Meet The Collaborators:
Poet Jericho Brown's poems have appeared in The Best American Poetry 2013, The Best American Poetry 2014, The New Republic, and The New Yorker. His first book, Please, won the American Book Award, and his most recent book, The New Testament, in which this poem appears, was published in the fall of 2014. Brown is currently Assistant Professor at Emory University.
Artist Stacy Isenbarger's creative pursuits include sculpture, installation, & mixed-media drawings. More on this can be found at www.stacyisenbarger.com. She teaches Art + Design at the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID. When she's not working or making—and sometimes when she is—she's usually dancing. She finds that the act continuously validates her joy of creative community collaborative space.
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.

We asked you to help celebrate, examine, and honor the past year in poetry and art. We listed "big topics" from 2014 and asked for your haiku. Via Twitter. Now see the results!
