Parachute Literary Arts collaborates with local letterpress printers to create limited-edition broadside posters. The Parachute Broadside Series is an ongoing initiative to recognize and celebrate writers who have written about Coney Island, and honor the words of those who are no longer with us.  It is also a chance to create new poems written about Coney Island by contemporary living authors. We donate our Coney Island poetry broadsides to local schools, libraries, and non-profit institutions in Coney Island.  A limited number are available for purchase.  Please contact us if you would like to purchase a broadside or have one donated
