Poetry Moves on Transit

Welcome to Poetry Moves on Transit, a program that places poetry on ETS (Edmonton Transit System) vehicles.

Spring 2019 Call for Submissions

Poetry Moves on Transit – Short poems, embracing all peoples, take centre stage on public transit.

The Edmonton Poetry Festival is looking for poems to appear on the Spring 2019 flight of Poetry Moves on Transit, a program that features poetry on Edmonton transit vehicles. This is an open call — send your best work on any subject. The poems will appear on transit vehicles in April during National Poetry Month! If you are looking for inspiration, the festival theme in 2019 is HomeWord. What words bring you home? What does home mean to you? Is home a place, a person, a feeling?

We can’t wait to read your work!

About Poetry Moves on Transit

Poetry Moves on Transit is an Edmonton Poetry Festival project that puts short poems into public transit vehicles. Three times a year we circulate a new flight of four poems in 800 ETS buses. Poems selected for the project are funded primarily by the Edmonton Arts Council.
