The Poetry OmniBus is a local juried poetry contest, in which selected poems will have the honor of being displayed on city buses for one year. The program nurtures our local writers, and provides inspiration, reflection, and consideration to the bus ridership. It also showcases our local talent to visitors and community members alike.
Adults or youth (ages 8 to 17) may participate. A total of 20 adult and 16 youth poems will be selected. The submission period for the program is from January through February 28, 2021, with a celebration ceremony in April.
