Bsided: Did the visual artist refract any element of the poem that made you see the poem differently?
Meet The Collaborators:
Poet Gibson Fay-LeBlanc's first collection of poems, Death of a Ventriloquist, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, spent several weeks on the Poetry Foundationís list of contemporary best-sellers, and was featured by Poets & Writers as one of a dozen debut collections to watch. Gibsonís poems have appeared in magazines including Guernica, The New Republic, and Tin House, as well as on the PBS NewsHour Art Beat. He has taught writing at conferences, schools and universities around the country. In 2011 he was named one of Maineís "emerging leaders" by the Portland Press Herald and MaineToday Media for his work directing The Telling Room, where he still occasionally teaches writing.
Artist Michele L'Heureux is a painter and curator who runs galleries at Wheaton College and at Brandeis University's Women's Studies Research Center. Michele has degrees in studio art and philosophy but has found her diploma in Carpentry from the North Bennett Street School most helpful in life. Her work can be seen at www.michelelheureux.com. This is her first Broadsided Press collaboration.
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.
