Quentin Tarantino’s knowledge and love of film and television are evident in his allusions and homages; Tarantino explains and expands upon those influences in talks and interviews, illuminating connections the audience may have missed. His influences range from Spaghetti Westerns to Samurai films, Blaxploitation flicks, film noir, Hong Kong crime, revenge cinema, American TV Westerns, and so on. Tarantino also highlights his literary inspirations, from pulp to classics. In a 1994 interview with David Wild, he spoke about J. D. Salinger’s influence on the structure of Pulp Fiction: “When you read his Glass family stories, they all add up to one big story. That was the biggest example for me.”

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We are a truly interdisciplinary journal published primarily in print but with a strong web presence.  We want beautifully crafted, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, memoirs, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews. We hope to create an engaging intersection where writing, poetry, and artwork can converge in one space to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not through an academic lens.  Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professor.  Think NPR.  Think New Yorker.  Think Broad Street.
