Guidelines for the Rossetti Broadside Prize

There are currently no calls for entries to this contest. Please check back for updates.

Before billboards and fliers, broadsides could be found posted all over the walls of towns and cities. Often printing the news of the day, broadsides were also used to publish ballads, decrees, opinions, comics, and poems commenting on current events.

We invite writers to submit prose or poetry that is engaged with contemporary events of the world. Once accepted for publication, an artist will be responding to your work visually. We seek writing that is evocative and uses concrete imagery that works well in context. In other words, be fierce and visceral.
