Dear State President/NFSPS State Society,
As sponsor and Director of the GRSF/Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest, for the past several years I have made it a point to contact all State Presidents for whom an email address is available through the NFSPS.
Our contest, based in Winona, MN, in cooperation with our well-known Great River Shakespeare Festival, has grown wonderfully across the United States, as well as internationally, and we have received quality sonnet submissions. I am a member of the Minnesota Society, and would be pleased if you are able to publicize the event among your members.
Submissions are now open for the 2018 Contest, with entries accepted until June 1.
All submission guidelines are available at sonnetcontest.org
Our mailing address is:

Please keep your poem under three pages and be careful about your language, as we prefer that you not use x-rated words. We honor your right of free speech, so be aware that any profanity used must be necessary to the message of the poem. Otherwise, we will look for your passion, concern and skill.
Number the pages and put your name on every page. Poems must be typed, single-spaced is fine. One poem per page, one column per page, and no more than five poems. Use a 12-point font New Times Roman or Helvetica, no fancy fonts, please.
This book will be a print volume available at independent bookstores in OR. If your poem is included in the volume, you will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
Your poem will be considered on its merits, chosen by the publisher. The editors will be using MLA (Modern Language Association www.mla.org) as the standard for editing and formatting. Final decisions will be at the discretion of the editors.
The deadline for submissions is August 1. 2018. We look forward to receiving your poetry. All work will be considered.
Send your submissions to:
