I’m in the process of creating a broadside of one of my poems that I plan to gift audience members with at two upcoming readings (I will post about them separately).
The broadsides of my own work are a first for me and I’ve had the great fortune to learn more about the history and origins of broadsides from a wonderful poet and friend.
In the past, Black Oak Books, a Berkeley independent bookstore, consistently and generously created broadsides and gifted them to audience members at readings.
I’m curious about the experiences that other writers have had with broadsides. Please share your stories about broadsides. It’s always good to hear what others have done and are doing.
Since a broadside represents one form of independent publishing, I think this will be my Independence Day Post.
