Poetry on the Bus is back...

Mikaela says:
Although it's not Route Words, or even ABQ Writership (my second suggestion...), the City transit department is soliciting poems until July 7 for its Poetry on the Bus program.

They've got prizes this year! Laptop, Ipod, gift cards... Pretty swanky!

You can submit up to three poems, each no more than 50 words. Get an application here.

If you want to share your submissions, you can post them in comments here.

Or be a good citizen and visit the official webpage here.

I hope lots of people submit poems to get a good cross-section of our community represented on the bus. I can't tell you how great it is to be doing something as mundane as riding the bus only to find 50-word inspirations waiting for you. It's the ultimate answer when you're praying for something to read...

Anyone can do it; everyone should. Go write!
