Sonnet Competition

Does your body hold the soul of a poet? Everybody, surely, has at least one sonnet in them. Here is a chance to share yours.

Open book with centre leaves flying out, becoming birds.

From the Shakespeare Club of Western Australia:

“To join the world-wide observances commemorating Shakespeare’s life and the 400th anniversary of his death the Shakespeare Club of WA is sponsoring a competition:  WRITE YOUR OWN SONNET.

Exercise your imagination and creative spark in a poem in the pattern of a Shakespearean sonnet, but using modern language.

Choose any theme, but link it in some way with Western Australia.

It can be comic, serious, satirical, romantic, descriptive… or what you will.”

Prizes:    1st:  $300     2nd:  $200     3rd:  $100

CLOSING DATE:  23rd September 2016
