Bus Poem Submission Call - The City's Changing Face

With Canada Day under our belts, it’s time to take stock of Edmonton’s place in this great nation of ours. The True North Strong and Free, The Republic of Alberta, Where The Prairie Meets the Mountains, Treaty 6 Land, Dirt City, Deadmonton, City of Champions, or The Boreal Forest. No matter how we are defined, that definition is shaped by our stories and our poetry.

Submissions for the upcoming flight of the Poetry Route, a project that places poetry on Edmonton Transit busses and trains, are now open. The theme is “The City’s Changing Face”, and we want to read your poetic stories of how much this city is changing / has changed.

Here is the official submission call. Check out the parameters and guidelines and get some poems together. The deadline for submissions is July 24, 2015.
