Poetry in Plain Sight is a program bringing poetry to downtown Winston-Salem. Four poems are chosen monthly and displayed on posters in over 20 locations throughout Winston-Salem’s Arts District and downtown, as well as in transit buses. The goal is to bring poetry to a wider audience and to support North Carolina poets.
