About Chickadee Chaps & Broads

Chickadee Chaps and Broads is a small spirited effort to inspire, promote and produce letterpress printed literary ephemera.

In April 2012 we hosted the first New England Broadside Show held in Montpelier, VT as part of PoemCity's National Poetry Month Festivities, and in October 2012 we mounted a Brattleboro Broadside Show as part of the Brattleboro Literary Festival programming.

In 2013 we launched our first Vermont Poetry Broadside Contest.

One day we envision letterpress printed poetry by Vermont writers displayed in public places throughout Vermont such as in the Interstate rest areas, aboard the Amtrak's Vermonter and Ethan Allen trains, throughout Greyhound's Bus terminals, and elsewhere! Here is one small step toward realizing this goal: All Aboard: Poetry Where You Least Expect It

Please get in touch with us at chickadeechapsandbroads@gmail.com if you'd like to request or suggest additional public venues for our Vermont Poetry Broadsides.

In 2014 we launched the first of our Chickadee Chap Tapas-lit Series.
