poem booth!

poem booth

It doesn’t look like much right now, covered with layers of stickers, flyers, grafitti, and paint. But if ​Shannon P. Laws, Christen Mattix, and Summer Starr have their way (and achieve their very modest $300 Kickstarter goal), that sad old phone booth on the side of the Community Co-op in downtown Bellingham, Washington, will be transformed into a Poem Booth.

Once the booth is cleaned up, the team will select a poem each quarter from open submissions that begin in January 2017. The poem will be displayed in the booth, which is adjacent to a large bulletin board.

You can find out more on the Poem Booth website and support the Poem Booth on Kickstarter (the campaign continues until Saturday, December 24, 2016, 3:06pm PST).
