Metro Transit and Madison's Poet Laureate invite you to send short poems, haiku, prose poems, or excerpts from longer poems, 3–15 lines total, to the 2020 Bus Lines open call for poetry.
Submissions can be made in any language. Poems in a different language must include an English version in order for full consideration. Selected poems will be transformed into moving art by Edgewood College Graphic Design students. The final designs will be approved by the Edgewood College Graphic Design Professor with consultation with the Poet Laureate and Metro Transit.
This year's theme is "How riding the bus is good for us and the planet."
