Broadsides on the Bus

What's better than poetry in motion? Poetry and art in motion! In our mission to bring poetry and art to the streets, we're riding the bus.


About 200,000 people rode the buses of Cape Cod in 2013—we're thrilled, this year, to bring them poetry and art.

Broadsides on the Bus kickoff reading and reception

In March and April, artists and poets of Cape Cod were asked to submit work for consideration. Below are the winning collaborations. They will join pieces from the Cultural Center of Cape Cod's Mutual Muses project and Broadsided Press on the buses beginning in May, 2014.

Coming in June!


Our first foray into public transit infiltration took place in Moscow, Idaho in the summer of 2013. There were "trading cards" for riders to take as well as broadsides on the busses, even the transit station got involved. The kickoff party included poetry readings at the bus stops.

Moscow, Idaho is home of Broadsided editor Alexandra Teague. In 2012, she and artist Stacy Isenbarger created the B-sided DIY with their students at the University of Idaho. These collaborations were featured on the bus.

Our featured July collaborations were a cornerstone of the project. Read more & see the broadsides.
