Fresh crop of poems sought for C-Tran buses
Artstra is accepting submissions for Season 11 of Poetry Moves, for a new group of poems to be showcased on C-Tran buses. The program welcomes poets of any age living in the Portland-Vancouver regional area served by C-Tran.
A maximum of two poems may be submitted, each of which must not exceed seven lines and must be the poet’s original work. Ten poems will be selected and displayed in C-Tran buses beginning September 2021.
Jurying of poems for this season will be generously provided by Thabiti Lewis, Ph.D., Professor of English and Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at Washington State University Vancouver.
More information including detailed guidelines and submission form can be found here. The deadline for submitting poems is August 15, 2021.
