Call For Poems - Poetry In Transit 2016

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 (September – August), with a monthly rotation so that riders can see all poems over time.
Winners are chosen by an advisory board of faculty from five area colleges: King's College, Misericordia University, Pennsylvania State University - Wilkes-Barre campus, Luzerne County Community College, and Wilkes University.
Let us put your poem on the bus!
Here are the specs:
  • Length: 6 lines or less
  • Theme: Flood
  • Please avoid profanity, outright political screeds, or religious statements
  • Languages: Any language is great if accompanied by an English translation
Submission (Deadline is Monday, April 25th, 2016):
