Words in Motion

[Click on the Image to view the Gallery]

Words in Motion is a literacy program that promotes an appreciation for the art of poetry. It is open to everyone living in the Wood Buffalo region. Whether you are a student, a professional writer or a novice wordsmith, you are encouraged to participate each year.

An external panel of judges selects the poems to be displayed on Wood Buffalo Transit buses and the Municipal website. Authors of the selected poems are invited to participate in the launch event at the Wood Buffalo Regional Library in April to celebrate National Poetry Month.

Selected submissions for the 2016 program have been compiled in the latest Words in Motion Poetry Book.
