THE ORIGIN OF THE WILD SONNETS

There are now over 600 Wild Sonnets. I started writing this series of poems eight years ago as a personal mission to create a variation of the sonnet that was innovative, unique, modern and mine. The six published volumes feature 100 poems each – and I am in the process of writing the seventh book now.

Here's the link to download all 6 published books.

ABOUT THE WILD SONNET FORM

The Wild Sonnet takes the 14 lines of the sonnet and divides them into two stanzas of seven lines, each capped with a rhyming couplet. The five preceding lines are allowed to ramble and stray from the iambic and pentameter which is the norm for the form. This is what makes them wild.

SELECTIONS FROM THE 6 WILD SONNETS BOOKS

My mission as a poet and artist is to create work that is meaningful, memorable – and if possible, masterful. Connection and craft are both deeply important as I write each of The Wild Sonnets. The gallery below features two poems from each of the six books.

If you would like to own the full six-book experience, I have put together a download that includes all 6 volumes of The Wild Sonnets – The Complete Collection for only $15. Here are two reviews from esteemed and established fellow poets (who are admittedly also honored friends):
