Moving Words Poetry Program

Moving Words is a program that makes poetry a part of daily life for commuters riding ART - Arlington Transit. The poems of ten Arlington Public Schools students and six metro-area adult poets will be displayed on ART buses throughout the year for bus riders to read and enjoy.

From October through March the poems of ten Arlington Public Schools students are selected for display through a partnership with the Arlington Public Schools Humanities Project. From April through September the poems of six local poets are featured. The poems displayed are selected through an annual competition with a deadline in January.

The Moving Words program started in 1999 during National Poetry Month. The program is run by the Cultural Affairs Division of the Arlington County Economic Development Department and is sponsored in part by Arlington Transit.

For more information and to receive submission guidelines, please visit arlingtonarts.org or call 703-228-1854 (TDD: 711).
