What's a Switcheroo?

A turning of the tables. In The Switcheroo, writers respond to the work of a Broadsided visual artist, rather than the other way around. This year, we have posted a piece by Douglas Culhane for you to respond to in words.

Only one response per entrant, please. 

  • Poems should be 20 lines or less.  
  • Prose should be 300 words or less.  
  • Please include a brief bio.
