Artstra is still accepting submissions for Season 12 of its Poetry Moves program, for a new group of poems to be showcased on C-Tran buses. The program welcomes poets of any age living in the Vancouver-Portland regional area served by C-Tran.

A maximum of two poems may be submitted, each of which must not exceed seven lines (no more than 50 characters per line) and must be the poet’s original work. Each poet whose work is selected will receive a $100 honorarium. Ten poems will be displayed in C-Tran buses beginning September 2022.

Raúl Sánchez to judge submissions
Nine poems will be chosen from submissions and a tenth poem will be offered by this season’s esteemed juror, poet Raúl Sánchez, Poet Laureate for the City of Redmond, Washington (2019-21). Sánchez is the author of two books of poetry When There Were No Borders (2021, Flowersong Press) and All Our Brown-Skinned Angels (2012, MoonPath Press).
