The 11th Annual Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam will be held virtually on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 1pm ET


Greetings Dear Shakespeare Loves!
There are a few ways you can participate with us in 2021!

1. You can submit a video of your sonnet performance. It can be any sonnet # you wish. Just one video per Sonneteer. The upload links and details will be shared once registration opens on April 1st. Your video will be premiered on April 24 and will be streamed online via YouTube and Facebook. It will then be archived on the Willful Pictures Vimeo Channel.

2. You can be a live reader. Live Reader registration will open April 1st. It will be a sign-up sheet and you may sign up for an available Sonnet #. One per person.

3. You can be a Standby Reader. You may also register for that on April 1.

I will post the registration info here on this page and on the Sonnet Slam FB page, @sonnetslam on Twitter and on the @Shakespearesonnetslam on Instagram.

It is free to participate and to attend. All ages & abilities are welcome. You may participate in multiple ways if you wish.

If you’d like to see how we did it in 2020, you can watch the Sonnet Slam video groups on our Willful Pictures Vimeo Channel. There was so much fun and creativity, I thank everyone who came to play.
