Poetry on the Move




Metropolitan Transit is now accepting poems for the  4th Annual Poetry on the Move Contest, in which the winning poetry will be printed and placed on VIA buses and vans for passengers to enjoy during National Poetry Month, April 2013.

The contest is open to poets from South and Central Texas who are at least 18 years of age. One to three poems may be submitted, and each poem should be no longer than 10 lines, including title and spaces.

To get the youth involved, an additional ten poems are selected from the San Antonio Public Library’s “Young Pegasus Program”. These poems are also displayed on our fleet in April.

The winning poets are recognized at a VIA Press Event, and they perform a reading at a local book store. The poems are also displayed on a VIA bus at Luminaria, and the poets do a reading there as well.

For more information, call Jerri Ann Jones at 362-2381.
