25 Years of Poetry in Transit
November 9, 2021
This year is the 25th anniversary of Poetry in Transit! To celebrate, the Association of Book Publishers of BC published a digital anthology of 40 poems featured in Poetry in Transit over the years, selected by poet Evelyn Lau.
Poetry in Transit has been running since 1996, making it the longest-running poetry on transit program in Canada. Poems eligible for the project must be by writers who reside in BC and published in book form by Canadian publishers. Poems are submitted by publishers and selected by a jury.
The Poetry in Transit campaign is presented by the Association of Book Publishers of BC in partnership with TransLink and BC Transit.
