In connection with the Shakespeare Festival that LIU Post will be hosting this spring, The Poetry Center is announcing a sonnet contest open to undergraduate and graduate students. We welcome entries of sonnets on all subjects and composed in any sonnet form. There will be cash prizes and the winners will read their sonnets at a Poetry Center event on March 2, 2016 and at the Closing Ceremony of the Shakespeare Festival. Become a bard! Most people have never written a sonnet. Most 21st century poets have never written a sonnet, so you may just as well try your hand.
Entries (up to 3) must be submitted as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: February 1, 2016
