WHERE IS BROADSIDED?
Broadsided is a physical press. In the cities and towns on the map below, people are getting broadsided, courtesy of our amazing Vectors. We have Vectors in every US state, Canada, the EU, Chile, and elsewhere.
Locations are a bit serendipitous—but that suits us just fine. After all, who wouldn't like to be surprised by poetry, startled by prose?
(What's a Vector, you ask? Read the column to the right.)
Get inspired by Vector postings in the Vector Gallery... and send us your pics!

Already someone posting in your neck of the woods? No problem! After all, as they say, there's more than one place to post a broadside.
Live in a teeny tiny town? Cool! Broadsiding is not restricted to major urban hubs.
Each April, in honor of National Poetry Month, we hold a Post-A-Thon. Vectors send in pictures, and there are prizes. Participate! Check out the winning entries!
BECOME A VECTOR
Of course, you can print and post Broadsided without saying a word. But what's the fun in that?
If you're willing to print out a couple of Broadsided publications each month and post them in a local coffee shop, library, bus station, public notice board, grocery store, or anywhere else you tend to frequent, you can consider yourself (and your community) Vectorized!
Being a Vector is easy. Broadsided publications are designed to be printed from your home computer on letter-sized paper (8 ½" x 11"). Nothing fancy required.
On a door? In a stall? On the plane? In a frame?
Where—precicely—do Vectors post?
Ideas & Inspiration Galore from the trenches of Vector-hood.

POETRY IN THE STALLS
It all started in 2013 at the Boston AWP conference. Rather than have another booth at the book fair, we talked to bars, cafes, and other joints in the area where hungry/tired/overwhelmed writers might seek out shelter and respite.
