What is a broadsheet? By definition, a broadsheet is a large piece of paper printed with information on one side only. In the world of poetry, a broadsheet is a great format in which to share or showcase one stand-out poem – winning this contest will surely do both!
The winner of the Broadsheet Contest receives $250, publication in the 2021 Poem In Your Pocket Day Booklet, and a special broadsheet of their poem handcrafted by artist Briar Craig.
Congratulations to Kim Fahner and her poem “Beekeeping” — 2021 Winner of the Broadsheet Contest!
