Door Shakespeare and Write On have partnered up for a sonnet writing contest in anticipation of Door Shakespeare’s production of As You Like It. In the play, the character Orlando pins verses on the trees in the Forest of Arden, 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. Winners’ poetry for each age group will be published in the Door Shakespeare play program handed out to audience members throughout the summer. In addition, winners will receive two complimentary tickets to both shows in Door Shakespeare’s 2023 summer season. Student winners will also receive complimentary registrations to Door Shakespeare’s youth theater program, Camp Will.
To help you prepare an entry, Write On is offering two free workshops on writing the sonnet. Workshops are open to all ages. Though free, registration is required. Their workshop will be held on Saturday, April 22, 1 pm, in the Jane Green Room of the Sturgeon Bay Library. You can register for the event here: https://writeondoorcounty.org/
