The 11th Annual Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam is Open for Registration! It 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. Please register to submit a video of your sonnet performance. It can be any sonnet # you wish. Just one video per Sonneteer and upload it by April 12 deadline. 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. Details will be sent to you after you register.

2. Please register to be a live Reader. Available sonnet numbers (sonnets that aren’t claimed by a video submission) will be posted on a sign-up sheet on April 13.

3. Please register to be a Standby Reader and do a cold read during the Slam via Zoom.
