About Poetic Journeys

Poetic Journeys was developed by the Creative Writing Program at the University of Connecticut and inspired by the New York MTA’s Poetry in Motion series, itself inspired by London’s Poems on the Underground. Poetic Journeys features poems written by UConn students, faculty, and staff on placards designed by students in the University’s Design Center.

Poetic Journeys began in the Fall of 2000, and subsequent series have been published annually. Poetic Journeys grants writers and designers a unique collaborative experience. It offers the campus community and visitors a poetic respite from their busy days, and an opportunity, each time they board a bus, to embark on a different kind of journey.
