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.

Meet The Collaborators:
Poet Maria Hummel is the author of the poetry collection House and Fire, winner of the 2013 APR/Honickman First Book Prize, and two novels: Motherland (Counterpoint, 2014) and Wilderness Run (St. Martin's, 2003). Her poetry, fiction, and nonfiction have appeared in Poetry, New England Review, Narrative, The Sun, The New York Times, and The Open Door: 100 Poems, 100 Years of Poetry Magazine. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and two sons.
Artist Elizabeth Terhune has exhibited widely throughout the United States. You can view some of her work online at www.elizabethterhune.com, and selected works in the Pierogi Gallery Flat Files, Brooklyn, NY, as well as through the Drawing Center's Online Viewing Program Artist Registry. She teaches painting and drawing at the 92nd Street Y and at NYU's School of Continuing and Professional Studies in New York City.
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.
3 artists, 3 chances to offer words as empathy, outrage, beauty & hope in response to the Ebola virus. Come back soon to see the collaborations.
