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.
Bsided: Did the visual artist refract any element of the poem that made you see the poem differently?
Bsided: When you began this piece, was it color, shape, or some other aspect that you followed? Did that change?

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.
Usually, at Broadsided, artists respond to writing. But we like to turn the tables once and a while. Soon, we'll post an image for you writers to leap from. Come back mid-month to Switcheroo!
