Moving Words Call for Poems

From November 10th to January 17th, we are looking for poems of 10 lines or less that will be displayed inside ART buses between March and September 2024. This year's competition will be judged by Arlington Poet Laureate Courtney LeBlanc!

Seven poems will be selected to be printed on colorful placards and displayed prominently on area buses, enlivening the ride for thousands of commuters. Each winner will also receive a $250 honorarium. Poets who live within the D.C. Metro transit area and are over 18 years old are eligible to enter. There is no fee to enter.
