Erasure (or blackout) poetry’s intention is to create poetry by erasing (or blacking out) text/imagery from an existing collection of words/images; for example: letters, articles, and other poetry. Shout out to Jeni De La O for the inspiration (saw her example on @jenidelao on twitter). Also, thank you to CBC Literary Prizes team for the rejection letter.
