In celebration of National Poetry Month and the shift in our MLWGS curricular focus to Latin America, here’s a poem challenge:
Write a poem inspired by, built from (found poem), or carved from (erasure poem) one of the following sources:
- Venezuala’s Tiananmen Square Moment: The Woman and the Armored Truck (CNN, 20 April 2017)
- The opening page (in English or Spanish) of Isabel Allende’s story “Two Words” from The Stories of Eva Luna (copies of the page available in the library and in PDF until April 28). If you write a found/erasure poem from the Spanish, please provide an English translation.
Submit your poem by Friday, April 28th.
All entries will be posted on the library’s chalkboard wall and included in a drawing for a copy of Tarfia Faizullah’s poetry collection Seam.
