The Broad Side Reading Series

The Broad Side Reading Series

The Broad Side is an annual event committed to women-identified writers taking up more than half of the spacetime. We lean towards the broad side of the spectrum, so to speak.

Each reading in the Broad Side Reading Series represents several weeks of collaboration between (mostly) women-identified writers and artists. Months before the reading, writers and printers are matched up to collaborate on original broadsides. Much of the work is created in the same space where readings take place at Baskerville.

We are looking for writers and artists to participate in The Broad Side!
