Poetry on Buses

October 1, 2014

King County, Washington

This year’s ambitious King County, Washington, project known as Poetry on Buses is nearing completion and getting ready for a November launch.

Founded in 1992, Poetry on Buses is sponsored by 4Culture and King County Metro. The 2014 project, coordinated by poet Roberto Ascalon, involved a series of eight Community Poetry Workshops (in English, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese) and yielded a selection of 365 winning poems.

All 365 poems will be featured, one a day, on the Poetry on Buses website and 125 of them will appear on select RapidRide buses or stations around King County.

The official launch party will be held on Monday, November 10, 2014, at Seattle’s Moore Theatre. All of the poems will be on display, 36 of the poets will read, plus there will be live music and special guests. It’s free, so mark your calendar, visit Poetry on Buses on Facebook, and then watch for the roll-out of Poetry on Buses around King County.

Here’s a link to more poetry on buses projects.
