Poetry on Wheels: The Poetry on Buses Takes Off Thanks to Your Participation

We had a fabulous time last Sunday --- and we hope you did, too!

Over one hundred and twenty poetry lovers and friends of poetry lovers came out to help us launch our newest publication, POETRY ON WHEELS: An Anthology of King County's Poetry On Buses Program 1997-2005. Chris Higashi of the Washington Center for the Book supplied us with a superb space and Floating Bridge and 4 Culture supplied the poets. We hope this is only the first of many programs that we can collaborate on in the future.

What made the event so successful? I'd say it was the spirit of community that infused the afternoon. Several people told me it was their first time at a poetry reading, but it would not be their last. Other folks shared ideas on other collaborative projects they'd like to work on with Floating Bridge -- and we're excited to do more community programs.

Finally a note to our contributors: for a discount price on the anthologies please, send a check to Floating Bridge Press c/o Richard Hugo House -- or if you are happy to order two or more anthologies, use our PayPal option and then email us that you are one of the contributors. We will send you two copies of the anthologies for the regular $10 price. Questions? Simply email us at and we will do our best to help.

We can still get you these beautiful blue books by Christmas.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Floating Bridge Press -
