A WORD ON THE WILD SONNETS

I started writing The Wild Sonnets in 2016, and there are now over 400 poems in the sequence. Essentially, I wanted to create a new variation of the sonnet form which was entirely my own – something that adhered to the compact expansiveness of the tradition, while giving it a sense of flow and frenzy that made it modern.

The Wild Sonnet form features two stanzas of seven lines each, both capped with a rhyming couplet. The preceding five may include internal rhymes – and always have a mad music to them. 

 

There are now four books of Wild Sonnets, each with 100 poems. I am offering a bundle that includes all four eBook editions (EPUB & PDF formats included) for only $20! You will find the information below.

 

To read the latest Wild Sonnets, I encourage you to join my Wild Sonnets Book Preview list. Every Sunday at 8:30AM EST, I send out one of the new Wild Sonnets with a link to my audio reading of the poem – and artist's notes on the origin and composition of the work. You can join the list here.

 

Also, I was recently interviewed by Cincinnati Magazine to discuss this year’s new book and the Wild Sonnets project in general, and you can read that conversation here.
