Just over 2 weeks remain until the deadline for the 2nd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest! Deadline August 1, 2012, 11:59 pm PST.
There’s $1000 in prizes and the Geist Erasure Trophy to be won, as well as publication in Geist and at geist.com. Oh yes, and literary fame, too.
The Erasure Poetry Contest asks you to create your own poetic masterpiece from an excerpt of How Should a Person Be? by Sheila Heti—erasing letters, words and sentences until your own genius emerges.
Visit geist.com/erasure for more details and to read the excerpt.
