Our thanks to those who contributed to the community poetry workshops, and to all that submitted a poem for consideration. We ♥ you!
All poems received by the submission deadline were reviewed by a diverse panel of seven professional poets. The panel selected 365 poems for the online collection, and 125 of the poems will also appear on select RapidRide buses and stations.
Come November, this site will transform into an online poetry portal, showcasing a new poem each day for a year. Seriously! A series of unique portraits and audio recordings of poems read by their makers will debut on a weekly basis, offering you a look and a listen to select poets. Four RapidRide buses will become Poetry Buses and a series of RapidRide stations will become homes for poetry.
Also, SAVE THE DATE for our launch party – November 10, 2014 at the Moore Theater. We’d love to see you.
