Call for poetry
Artstra is proud to announce the call for poetry submissions for Poetry Moves Season 9. All levels are welcome to submit. The deadline for submissions is October 31. Poetry Moves is a chance to inspire thousands or even help someone else with your creative heart and words.
Artstra’s Poetry Moves features original works by poets in Clark County and throughout Southwest Washington on C-Tran buses. The upcoming six-month session highlighting adult poets runs from January 2020 through June.
There is no need to rhyme every line. Free verse repetition with rhythmic quality that uses mechanisms like alliteration and metaphor and even every day speech can create magical poems. Of course, poetry can also be quite complex in its renderings of subjects, experience, and feelings as well. Poetry Moves connects our community, and all poets – new and experienced — are encouraged to submit original works.
