Broadsided! April 23-25th, 2010






This sounds like fun!  

If you've never heard of Broadsided, they take your poem and make into a gorgeous broadside that people can print out and post around the community (in random acts of poetry).  


To take part in this event, go to the their website, find a broadside you want to share with the world, post it, document it with a photo and send it in...

I'll be documenting my entry today--

Kelli,
I LOVE this idea. It is a brilliant marrying of old and new technologies. My Broadside was done in August 2008 of "Ghazal for the Woman from Vitez, Bosnia" and I'm planning a project this weekend.
