GRSF/Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest Kick-Off Event

In recognition of April as National Poetry Month, the SONNET CONTEST KICK-OFF event will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 in Winona, Minnesota, at 7:00 pm, at the Blue Heron Coffeehouse (162 W. 2nd Street). The event will feature presentations by Winona’s Past and Present Poets Laureate, perhaps a “Speed Sonnet” contest, snacks, door prizes, and sharing of poetry by attendees. Flutistry will perform during the gathering time from 6:30-7:00pm. Each year we have a ball and the public is welcomed to attend this free event.
