In search of the perfect sonnet...



*Writing* Welcome to The Perfect Sonnet Contest! *Writing*


ROUND 10 IS OPEN!


Thanks to iKyama-Cleaning! for the image, and Angels in my Ear for the beautiful ribbon! *Heart*

I love poetry, and I love sonnets.  I could read them all day, every day.  So I'm on a search for the best of the best here at WDC!

THE RULES


Quantity: One (1) sonnet must be written by the deadline.

Theme: Any theme/open.

Type of sonnet: Spenserian sonnet.  Any other type of sonnet will not qualify.


Submissions can be old or new, but only sonnets that haven't won an awardicon already may be submitted to this contest.

Once you submit your item, do not edit it.  I might read it before the deadline to get a head start.

Please post your entry into your message in b-item or book entry format, like so: {b-item:1234567} Just replace those numbers with the numbers of your static item's ID.  If you need help with that or how to post a book entry, please e-mail me.


DEADLINE


The deadline is July 31, 2014 at 11:59 pm WDC time
