Erasure Poems: A Challenge with Karen McCarthy Woolf and Julia Bird

The Poetry Society’s Young Poets Network is looking for erasure poems by poets aged 5-25, from anywhere in the world!

Erasure poems are poems made out of pre-existing texts. They can be political, playful, or anything in between, and use any form of text, from manuals and leaflets to Shakespearean plays - or something else entirely!

Selected poets will be published on Young Poets Network, and sent an exclusive YPN notebook, a copy of Karen McCarthy Woolf’s 'Unwritten' anthology and other goodies.
