Poetry Omnibus 2020 selections announced

Ceann Murphy, the Poetry Omnibus coordinator, sent the list of poems selected for placement on the Capital Transit buses this year.

There were 89 entries this year! Thanks to Anne Sutton and Emily Wall for judging the adult category and Amy Pinney and Clara Miller for judging the youth category.   

We will not have the annual reading celebration at the library this April before the poems hit the buses. The  2020 Selections up on the Juneau Poets website for everyone to enjoy, and we will be posting them one each day on social media. 
Please share!
