BE INSPIRED:

Julianne Harmatz (@jarhartz) created an erasure poem called “Code Switch,” which was inspired by a post Dana Murphy wrote here. The poem was created using a slice of life story she wrote. An erasure poem is a great way to try your hand at poetry while still conveying a narrative. If you want to try something different today, read Julianne’s “Code Switch” post and then have-a-go with an erasure poem today.
