Have you ever ridden the Metrobus, and wondered about the poems posted inside? They’re the product of Moving Words, a program makes poetry a part of daily life for commuters in Northern Virginia, and promotes the work of local writers.
Submission Theme – Poets who live within the DC transit zone are eligible to enter the competition for poems inspired by first loves — places, people, ideas, moments or objects. Submission deadline is January 22, 2011.
Moving Words is a program of the Cultural Affairs Division of the Arlington County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources, and is sponsored by the Arlington County Department of Environmental Services Commuter Assistance Program and METRO.
