The 2019 Great River Shakespeare Festival/Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest season concluded on July 20th when winners were named in each of several categories at our Awards Ceremony. The winners were notified individually ahead of the public announcement. We are so pleased by the extensive interest in this ancient, yet ever-new, poetic form.
A complete list of the 2019 winners is available at sonnetcontest.org/2019-winners. Links to the winning sonnets are available on this page and in the menu at the top of each page.
If you have any feedback about the winning sonnets or the contest, please send us a message through the Contact Us form. We appreciate your input.
I, and others who assist in sponsoring this contest, greatly appreciate your interest in the Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest and we hope you will continue to follow us in our 2020 competition. (Details will be posted on this site in January, 2020).
