|Organization||Geist Erasure Poetry Contest|
|Due Date||September 1, 2019|
|Last Reported||August 1, 2019|
|Description||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 Text for the 2019 Contest is an excerpt from A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder by James De Mille. To enter, just copy the given passage and then erase; the leftover words and letters will form your poem. The ONLY RULE is do not change the order of words or letters. And also give it a title. First Prize: $500; second Prize: $250; third Prize: $150.|
