Poetry in Action Now Open
The Poetry in Action program which puts poems in ACTION buses in Canberra has been opened up to anyone who is a resident of the ACT. Submissions are now invited for poems of up to 8 lines on the themes Canberra/Centenary/Birthday. Deadline: February 15. Winners receive $500 each. More information at http://www.arts.act.gov.au/arts_grants/act_poetry_prize By the way 10 shortlisted poets get a $40 MyWay ticket - better than a kick in the teeth. Think of the poems you might find on the buses (that's how I started).
