On Friday, July 6 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. C-TRAN and the Arts of Clark County will host a kick-off event for the seventh season of Poetry Moves at Turtle Place in downtown Vancouver. A new Poet Laureate of Clark County will also be announced at the event.

Since 2016, bus riders have been able to enjoy poems written by local writers who are selected by committee through the Poetry Moves writing competition. The program displays these works inside C-TRAN buses making them available for all to enjoy

Displayed poems rotate every 6 months. This season’s poems are all written by students ranging from third grade through twelfth grade and represent the creative talent and diversity of Clark County.

For more information on the program, including all current and past poems, please visit poetrymoves.org or artsofclarkcounty.org.
