Never have written a sonnet, and am not at all a writer, but how nice you've posted this to make folks aware. Best of Luck to all.

I'm making blog rounds to let everyone know there's a contest!

I would love to try my hand at it, but the deadline is too close for me to attempt it this year. Thanks for the information, though. Apparently they do it ever year, and I've bookmarked it for next year.
