Poetry OmniBus 2012

Posted on January 23, 2012 by


What’s with poems on the bus?

Inspired by similar literary outreach programs in London, Seattle, and New York, Poetry OmniBus places poem-placards in locations usually reserved for advertisements on Capital Transit buses to promote our local writers and literary arts.

But, why the bus?

Poetry OmniBus hopes to make bus riding in Juneau more enjoyableand enlightening for riders, while giving writers another venue for their work (think tourists!). Entries are accepted January 10 – March 10 2012. Poems selected for display on Capital Transit buses will be read at the presentation ceremony held at the Downtown Juneau Public Library in late March/early April.
