Our Broadsides

The Literary House Press publishes an annual series of broadsides featuring the work of visiting writers. Previous broadsides have featured the work of Daniel Handler, Ted Kooser, Jane Smiley, and Natasha Trethewey, among others. Beginning in 2013, the Literary House Press also began publishing an annual broadside series to commemorate the AWP Conference. This series is a collaboration with a nationally-recognized literary magazine from each year’s host city.
