For several years, the Downtown Writers Center worked with Boxcar Press to produce limited edition letterpress poetry broadsides commemorating appearances by authors visiting our reading series. Each of these prints was created in an edition of 50 copies, and each is numbered and signed by the poet... truly collectible works of art! All measure 11x14 inches (with the exception of Carol Frost's broadside, which is smaller), and can easily be mounted in off-the-shelf frames from any craft store.

All broadsides listed below are currently available for purchase. Shipping within the United States is $6 for up to five broadsides. For more information, including photos, contact director Phil Memmer at pmemmer@syracuseymca.org. Payments can be made by check, by phone with a credit card, or through PayPal.


Prices on all broadsides are reduced, and shipping in the United States is free on all orders of two or more DWC broadsides through July 30.
