Let Your Creativity Shine — Submit Your Poems to Words in Motion

(Fort McMurray, AB – November 22, 2016) – Are you a local writer or poet? Do you enjoy writing? Submit your poetry to the Words in Motion poetry program for the opportunity to have it celebrated across the region.

“Words in Motion promotes literacy throughout the region as well as art and culture in the form of poetry,” said Mayor Melissa Blake. “There are so many talented writers in Wood Buffalo and I encourage all residents, whether they write professionally or just for fun, to submit their works.”

The deadline to submit poems is Feb. 3, 2017. Poems of any form or language will be accepted, however, an English translation must be submitted along with the original poem. Selected poems will be displayed on Wood Buffalo Transit buses and shelters. Authors will be invited to participate in a celebration event at the Wood Buffalo Regional Library in April in honour of National Poetry Month.
