October Broadsided: Hot off the Virtual Presses

Getting on top of October Broadsiding early, often and as redundantly as bearable.... one hopes there is a future for art and poetry spam. Coals to Newcastle again, I am starting with poets.

Writer Lisa Ortiz has had poems appear in Zyzzyva, The Literary Review, Crab Creek Review and Comstock Review and have been featured on Verse Daily. She was a 2007 and 2008 recipient of Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Prizes. Her chapbook Turns Out is available from Main Street Rag Publishing Company.

Artist Kevin Morrow received his MFA degree from the University of Auckland, New Zealand where he studied in the Contemporary Maori Department (Te Toi Hou). Upon completion, Morrow returned to the U.S. to live and work in Austin, Texas where he spent a year or so concentrating on earthworks. Morrow now lives and works in New York.

Collaborators' Q&A:
...the poem gave me this country, barn, plains feel. I can't say exactly why that is, but that is the beauty of writing.
