Poetry In Transit 2015: Call For Poems

Call For Poems
~ Poetry In Transit 2015 ~
Poetry In Transit, an award-winning community program, invites your participation. Patterned after the just-rejuvenated Poetry In Motion on New York's Transit System, along with London’s Poems on the Underground program, Poetry In Transit displays poetry in advertising space inside Luzerne County Transportation Authority (LCTA) buses.  The poems stay up for one year, with a monthly rotation so that riders can see all poems over time.
An advisory board from five area colleges (King's College, Misericordia University, Pennsylvania State University - Wilkes-Barre campus, Luzerne County Community College, and Wilkes University) will choose the winners.
We would love to have one of your poems on the bus!
Here are the specs:
  • Length: 6 lines or less (excerpts from longer works are fine, but you must choose the 6 lines to send)
  • Theme: River
  • Please avoid profanity, outright political screeds, or religious statements
  • Languages: Any language is great if accompanied by an English translation
Submission (Deadline is April 30th, 2015):
  • Email your poetry to: mischelleb.half@gmail.com
  • Mail your poetry to:
