Night School – Broadside

by Arthur Solway


A gorgeous, limited edition broadside of one of the winning poems from our Third Annual Broadside Contest.

From the judges’ citation:

“For literary editors, selecting a poem for broadside publication carries with it a special charge. The poem must be one that lends itself to multiple careful readings, and one that generously offers layer after layer of interpretive possibility. Secondly, it must a poem that fortifies, one that the reader will revisit in their brightest, and perhaps their darkest, hours. Lastly, a poem selected for broadside publication would ideally approach the page as a visual field, utilizing even the white space, the silences and apertures, to actualize its meaning. Garcia and Solway offer us work that is in every way a broadside designer’s dream. Here is poetry that offers hope, resilience, and beauty in all of their gorgeous complexity. Here are poems that use the space of the page in a visually engaging, and deeply philosophical, way. Bravo!”
