Submission Guidelines

Read our About page to learn more about this project. To make an erasure poem from the inaugural speech, first download the text from the White House website.

We are interested in submissions that present your chosen words in traditional poem format, as well as more visually-oriented approaches. In either case, files should be smaller than 2 MB.

For text poems, please send in .doc, .txt, or .rtf formats.

For visual poems, please send your file in in .jpg format.

Attach your poem to an email that includes your name, mailing address, and a brief bio.

Send it to: erase.transform <at> gmail <dot> com
