Poetry In Motion

For the second time since 1999, the work of local Ottawa poets will appear on OC Transpo buses.

On Thursday afternoon, Michelle Desbarats [left] takes a ride on the poetry bus along with all the other selected poets and other supporters of the program including Melanie Rutledge [right] Head of Writing and Publishing, Canada Council. And if you look hard enough, another transpoetry poet and recent Carleton University graduate, John Cloutier stands at top left of photo.

John Cloutier tells me that he has a enough poems for a book which he's currently assembling and he is ready to shop it around to willing publishers.

Along with Michelle, who represents Glebe, there a dozen poets in all who were also selected to appear on the inside of more than 800 buses in Ottawa. The others include Stephen Brockwell, John Cloutier, Heather Cullen, Christine Dickson, Susan Robertson, Anita Utas, Margaret Michele Cook, Nicole Champeau, Jacques Flamand, Myriam Legault, and Denyse B. Mercier.
