Own a Piece of APS Poetry!
In 2012, the Austin Poetry Society teamed up with Capital Metro to host the Poetry With Wheels contest. Poets submitted their poems, and the winning entries were published in Capital Metro buses in Austin. The bus placards were designed by Christine Gilbert and all are unique, inspiring works of art.
The Poetry With Wheels contest is over, and most of the poems have been removed from the buses, but the APS has extra copies of some of the beautiful placards, and we would like to offer them to YOU for a small donation. These poetic pieces of art would look great in a home, office, library, or classroom. They are 28 inches wide and 11 inches tall and made of thick cardboard.
If you would like to own one or more of these winning poems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the number of the placard you want (shown below the image), and the amount you would like to donate. (We ask that you give at least $5 per piece of art.) You can mail your check made out to Austin Poetry Society to:
The Austin Poetry Society
P.O. Box 41346
Austin TX 78704
You may pick up your placard at our April meeting (Saturday, April 30th at 1:30PM at the Windsor Park Library) or at our Annual Awards Ceremony (Saturday, May 28th at 300PM at the North Door). If you cannot attend either of these events, let us know and we will arrange another time and location for you to pick up your poem.
Thank you for supporting the Austin Poetry Society!
