The 2nd David Martinson Broadside Memorial
Stephen Frech "Living with Poetry"
In March 2010, Stephen Frech read poetry on campus, worked with print making students on a broadside, and was featured at a public event celebrating the broadside work of David Martinson. Given the success of the 2010 events, Frech returned to NDSU, March 18 and 19, 2013. Frech’s visit included the Second David Martinson Broadside Memorial along with the broadside printing workshop ongoing both days in NDSU Renaissance Hall 314. In honor of David Martinson, Frech chose to publish a print broadside of Martinson's poem, "The Immigrant." Frech's NDSU broadsides are available for purchase online through the NDSU Division of Fine Arts.

He has published three award winning volumes of poetry and his fourth poetic volume, A Palace of Strangers Is No City, was published by Cervena Barva Press in 2011.
