The 2019 Geist Erasure Poetry Contest submission deadline
September 1, 2019
Erasure poetry begins with an existing piece of text. Letters, words and punctuation are removed—or erased. What is left behind is a new stand-alone poem, one that both complements and gives new meaning to the Erasure Text.
The Erasure Text for the 2019 Geist Erasure Poetry Contest is an excerpt from A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder by James De Mille, published by Harper & Brothers in 1888.
