Dwell Press & Artsmith Broadside Contest
Announcing the second annual Dwell Press / Artsmith Summer Solstice Broadside Contest. The winning entry will be produced in a limited, numbered edition broadside of 75 prints: 50 for the author and 25 for the press. The winning poem will also be published and the broadside featured on the Artsmith and Dwell Press blogs.
Winner(s) will be selected anonymously by the editor and letterpress printer, Juniper White. In the event of a tie, the press may publish co-winners. Honorable Mentions and Finalists will be listed on the Artsmith and Dwell Press blog.
All broadsides are printed from hand-set metal type on archival quality 100% cotton paper, with original artwork completed in woodcuts, or pen and ink and polymer, and through equal parts of deliberation, consternation, and delight hand fed through a thigh-powered 1916 Chandler and Price 10 x 15 letterpress, aka ‘Sweet William.'
