The 10th Annual Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam will be held virtually this year!
We received the LMCC Creative Engagement and UMEZ Grant in 2020 so we will not be needing donations! Keep your money!
If you want to be a Sonneteer, please pick ONE of the Shakespearean Sonnets and create a video for it. You can pick any Sonnet you wish and you can only submit one video.
REGISTER TO PICK YOUR SONNET via this google form:
2020 Virtual Sonnet Slam Registration
You may perform your Sonnet however you want. Keep it under 2 minutes long. Shoot your video HORIZONTALLY so it is full frame when you playback. Vertical videos will be rejected.
Submissions for the videos will be accepted from Oct. 1 until Oct. 15th. After you register via the Google form, I will email you instructions to upload your video.
Yes, there may be people who choose the same Sonnet # and that’s OK!
I will hold an international screening party on Saturday, October 24th from 1-4:30pm ET
It will be FREE to view. I will then post the videos on my VIMEO channel.
Thank you all!
Your Shakespeare friend,
Melinda Hall, Creator and Producer
