Poems Around Town


Write by the Rails is pleased to announce an area-wide poetry installation. The goal is to encourage people to stop and read a piece of literary art they might not otherwise even glance at, something short that will get them thinking in a different way.

It works very simply: We create and print a design with a member’s poem. Each poem is put in a clear stand or frame for placement wherever the hosting organization would like. The more visible, the better.

The poems are family-friendly. There is no cost to the location owner, and we will advertise on social media, on websites and in local publications where people can find these exhibits once they are installed. Promotion of the hosting organization will remain active as long as the installation remains visible there.

For more details and to become an installation host, email WbtR president Katherine Gotthardt at
