Dear Friend of the Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest, in partnership with the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Winona, MN:

Just a brief note—although I know some of you are already aware from internet or other sources—our Sonnet Contest for 2017 is now receiving entries, with a deadline for sonnet submissions by June 1st.

Rules and Guidelines for the 2017 Contest have been updated, with COMPLETE CONTEST INFORMATION to be found at In brief, over $2,000 in prizes are offered, with a $5.00 entry fee for up to 3 sonnets.

Submissions should be made through our on-line process, with payment option by PayPal or check. If this process presents a hardship, please email for instructions for entering by mail.

To encourage participation, new this year there is no fee for entrants in the 17 and Under category. Last year’s contest was hugely successful and in 2017 we anticipate even greater participation!

We look forward to receiving your entries this year as well, and Good Fortune in your sonnet writing.

Ted Haaland, Director
