The Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest invites you to Take A Leap with us at the Blue Heron Coffeehouse. In partnership with the River Arts Alliance and the Great River Shakespeare Festival, we will celebrate the 2020 contest with music by Jim Reineke, an exploration of the sonnet as a poetic form by Emilio DeGrazia, and activities including sonnet readings by Doug Scholz-Carlson of the Great River Shakespeare Festival and Ken McCullough, Winona’s former Poet Laureate; a workshop which will entice you to write a sonnet on the spot; and even a group Sonnet Mad Lib just for fun! The Blue Heron Coffeehouse will serve light refreshments. This event is free and open to the public.
The Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest is a project of the River Arts Alliance.
