Write On is pleased to partner with Door Shakespeare on a sonnet writing contest in anticipation of Door Shakespeare’s production of “As You Like It,” opening July 1. In the play, the character Orlando pins verses on the trees in the Arden Forest, declaring his love for Rosalind.Sonnets submitted to the contest will be incorporated into the set design of “As You Like It.” Who doesn’t want to see their poetry on stage?!
The contest accepts entries from the following age groups: (1) middle school students, (2) high school students, and (3) adults. The contest is open April 1 to May 13. To help you prepare an entry, we are offering two free workshops on writing the sonnet. Workshops are open to all ages. Though free, registration is required. The first session will be held Saturday, April 15, 11 am, at Write On, Door County. The second session will be held Saturday, April 22, 1 pm, in the Jane Green Room of the Sturgeon Bay Library.
