In partnership with TransLink and BC Transit, the ABPBC produces a collection of poetry car cards annually, which feature the work of BC-authored and Canadian-published poets. Now in its 21st year, this project is an opportunity to share these wonderful poems with the larger community.

2017 Twitter Giveaway

To celebrate the launch of our new season of Poetry in Transit, Read Local BC is doing a Twitter giveaway featuring books from our poets published on our posters.

To Enter:

The contest runs starting September 24th (with the launch coinciding with our Poetry In Transit event at Word Vancouver) to November 30th.

We will be using the hashtag to monitor submissions and will send a tweet to the winners in early December.
