As featured in Poets & Writers Magazine‘s News and Trends, open-air publishing is growing in popularity as “innovative independent publishers continue to find ways to thread literature into the social fabric.”

What is open-air publishing? From poets passing out poems on street corners to public bathroom stall tape-ups, this form of publishing is all about “bringing literature into people’s daily lives.”

Enter Broadsided, the creation of Elizabeth Bradfield and begun in 2005. E-submissions of short prose and poetry are paired with unique artist responses in a monthly PDF, which can be printed and distributed by anyone. Become a “vector” by posting Broadsided on your office door or take some on vacation this summer to leave a subversive trail of literature in unexpected places.
