Poetry Omnibus accepting submissions until Jan. 31

Poetry Omnibus is accepting submissions for a new year of poems on Juneau city buses.

Poems must be original, by a local resident, less than ten lines (including the title and lines between stanzas) and appropriate for the bus.

There are two categories: youth, or between third grade and age 17, and adults, age 18 and older. Local poet Mary Lou Spartz said organizers would like to encourage poems from local youth.

The first poem is free to submit. The second two (each poet can submit up to three) cost $3 each.

Coordinator Ceann Murphy said there are 28 spots for poems on Juneau buses. Last year, she said, there were more than 70 submissions, but the organization still has a long way before reaching that number this year. Poems will be up on the bus throughout the year.

Instructions on how to submit are at https://jahc.org/?event=poetry-omnibus.

The deadline is Jan. 31, 2017.
