Broadside organization is run entirely by current Bradley students who love writing and art. Student committees evaluate pieces for publication in the
journal through an anonymous selection process. Only the Editor-in-Chief knows who submits each piece. Broadside holds at least one Open Mic
night each year. These events are opportunities for students to share their creative work with each other. Any student may read or perform at these
events or sit in the audience and enjoy. Watch for flyers around campus announcing Broadside events and deadlines.
