  • Poetry In Transit

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 Giveaway

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

THE CONTEST IS NOW OVER. Thank you to those who entered.

Even though the contest is over, we would still love to see any poetry in transit you spot. Post your picture using the #poetryintransit hashtag and mention @ReadLocalBC on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
