The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival is celebrating 25 year of presenting Shakespeare’s works and providing year-round education programs for kids and adults. Join the celebration! Sonnet and Poster Contests (scroll past several entries) for youth and adults are open now until April 14th.
Winners of the sonnet competition will read their sonnets, and posters will be displayed, at a reception in their honor.
According to William Zinsser in On Writing Well, "the secret to good writing is to strip every sentence to its cleanest components." He is suggesting we edit out every unnecessary word, making the words you do choose of utmost importance. Today, we're asking you play with words you may not know, or don't use very often.
