Dear Vectors and Friends of Broadsided,Summer's in full swing, yet we look ahead this month to the school year with the textbook-inspired meditation of Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet and Se Thut Quon. We hope some of you got to New York's Poet's House to see the 2011 Showcase. Broadsided sent in a collection of all our published work, which is now housed in the library there. One Vector in Missouri who runs a theater printed up a bunch of Broadsided publications and papered the lobby walls. We're glad to be out and about in the world... were are you posting? Let us know....

...I thought the lovers might make an appearance, but I had no idea how that might actually play out visually. Their absence is a kind of odd presence. Read more of what the poet and artist had to say about their Broadsided experience.
