Thank you for your interest in entering our first Poetry-in-Motion Sonnet Writing Contest. Geoffrey Owens, of The Cosby Show, and RisingStar31 Productions teamed up to launch an initiative which showcases the literary works of talented writers. This first contest is organized to coincide with the holidays and explore the theme, “Holidays Past and Present.”

The writer should submit one sonnet (which commonly consists of 14 lines, each of which has ten syllables written in iambic pentameter). Writers, however, can submit a poem that is similar to a sonnet, even if it’s not entirely structured within a Shakespearean, or otherwise, classical form. A poem with a powerfully inspiring message will still be given consideration.

The winner is awarded a $1,000 Prize and publication in our future RisingStar31 e-Magazine and Web site.

Geoffrey, a Shakespearean actor and drama instructor, has created an exciting new selection of on-line greeting cards with classical sonnets, and brings a wealth of experience to the venture. He will be the judge who selects the winning writer from ten finalists.

Guidelines & Information

Eligibility: Poets writing in English, who either have or haven’t already published a poem. Simultaneous submissions are fine, however, please inform us if there’s a change in your poem’s status.
