Poetry in Motion

Poetry in Motion is a public poetry art project that features short poems by local writers on transit ads in buses, on digital signs at libraries, ferry terminals, and recreation centres, and in social media posts. The project is hosted by Halifax Regional Municipality, Halifax Public Libraries, and the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS). Check out last year's featured poems here!

Interested in adding your voice to Poetry in Motion? The latest call for submissions is open until May 31, 2020. This year, Poetry in Motion will showcase poems that speak to the theme of journeys. This theme can be interpreted broadly, and may touch on journeys outward, journeys back home, the passage of time, or other forms of travel, transportation, and exploration.
