FYI ~ Poets and Writers Picnic and Tamra Hays ~ Manzano Mountain Art Council member, poet, travel writer, gardener and photographer ~ represent Mountainair as Broadsiding Vectors. There is always room for more poetry, more art and more Vectors broadsiding both. Join us!
More about Broadsiding: loosely defined as single sheets of paper printed on one side, broadsides were the most diverse form of brief, single-occasion publishing before the Civil War. Dating back much earlier in England and Europe, broadsides became a prime means of communication in the United States. Announcements, advertisements, song lyrics, commentaries, cartoons, and poems were printed and posted in towns across the nation. Later, 20th century writing movements claimed the broadside as a below-the-radar way to get their words out onto the streets. Locally, broadsides remain the dominant print medium for publishing and distributing public notices. Where better than Mountainair to continue the tradition by broadsiding poetry and art?
