The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival presents a Sonnet Celebration!
We’re putting our annual Sonnet Competition on hold this year in order to give EVERYONE a chance to have their writing published on our website. Celebrate this unique and challenging writing form by creating your very own English style, 14-line sonnet. You choose the theme and write and we’ll share your sonnet with the world.
Want to write a sonnet but not sure where to start? Check our our step-by-step How to Build a Sonnet guide for tips on how to get writing.
Entries will be accepted from all writers grade 6 through adult. Sonnets must be submitted by 5 p.m. om Friday, May 21, 2021. Please send your sonnet(s) along with your filled out entry form to email@example.com, or mail them to us at 3732 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64111.
We will publish those sonnets that are appropriate for all ages on our website, after May 24, 2021.
