Longlisted for the 2nd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest.
Often, you people, used to be doctors bein free, come over. We have our usual conversation. Obamacare. Famous canadians. Protesting students. And yes, you speak francais. Do not gag too much. Just try to breathe. We haven’t too many examples of what a genius looks like. It’s pretty clear--we envy you.
Erasure poetry begins with removing letters and words from an existing text in order to create a new stand-alone piece that provides new meaning to the original passage. For the 2nd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest, we posted an excerpt from the novel How Should a Person Be? by acclaimed Canadian author Sheila Heti.
The 3rd Erasure Poetry Contest is now underway. Enter today!
