About Writer by Bus:
Public transportation is a key part of how our community connects – whether or not you are a bus rider yourself. Public transportation connects our neighborhoods; connects people to employment, medical, and other services; and it helps keep cars off the road, which means everyone else can get where they’re going a little faster. Once again in 2019 we will tell the story of public transportation’s ability to connect people through its Writer by Bus program. A writer or writers will be provided a bus pass and paid an honorarium of $1,000 to create a unique work of literature while riding different bus routes. The work may be any genre including short stories, poetry, essays, plays, etc. and may also be multimedia and include art, music or photography. The work will be published on the participating organizations web sites and other venues as possible. ★
