King County residents! The Poetry on Buses project is back. This is great news – whether you’re a bus rider, a poet, or both. I’m delighted to see that the project is now multilingual, and includes free writing workshops in English, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese, taught by wonderful poets including project lead Roberto Ascalon, Anna Vasileskaya, Mohamed Shidane, Raul Sanchez and Ky Huu Nguyen.
The theme is “Writing Home.” I understand that there will be four buses dedicated to poetry and 366 poems online at poetryonbuses.org.
Submissions of 50 words or less are due by June 30, 2014.
Visit http://poetryonbuses.org for all the details.
