Sonnet Writing

For all of you who are writing your own sonnets and publishing them on the blog — keep it up! I think this is such a good way for you to put yourself in the mind of a writer like Shakespeare and get a first hand look at the craft of poetry. It’s harder than you would think. I’m posting this link to guide you future poets on the precise definition of sonnets and their various forms. Yes, there’s more than one kind! Take a look at the second link to see a collection of contemporary sonnets from the Elizabethan period. If you keep posting your sonnets, perhaps the TA’s will feel encouraged to give it a try.
