Valentine's Day Sonnet Contest 2019
Valentine's Day Sonnet Contest 2019

Submit a sonnet about love: unrequited love, rejected love, seasonally instigated dental caries, or a reproach to Saint Valentine for buying into the patriarchal economy of the exchange of women, for examples. Sure, the sonnet is often considered to be a well- established format, but we encourage innovation. (Remember, Shakespeare broke the rules!)

Submit your entry, identified only by B00# (no name), to the creativewriting@dal.ca by Monday, February 5th. The contest is open to all English and/or Creative Writing Major and Honours students. Winners will be announced by Friday, February 15th, and published on the English and Creative Writing Department Websites.

One prize of $100 will be awarded!
