EDIT: FSC is live! Remember to submit your day's entries to the FSC folder!

I am incredibly excited to announce our first February Sonnet Challenge (FSC)! Running from the first of February to Valentine's Day (February 1-14), be prepared for the most lyrical fortnight of 2013 as you explore 14 different sonnet forms!

The sonnet forms for each day are contained in the 2013 FSC Guide, which you can take a look at here: fav.me/d5sigqp

February Sonnet Challenge 2013 by Parsat

Each day has a different sonnet form for you to test your mettle against, with explanations and examples provided. Prompts are not given this year, although I do suggest you use your Valentine's Day sonnet to write to that special someone. :)

If for any reason you cannot open or view the PDF, you may download a Word document version from my dropbox instead: www.dropbox.com/s/k34ui55x8a04…

I will open up an FSC 2013 folder for you to submit your entries to, for your reading pleasure. After the challenge is done, I will copy submissions to their respective form folders. FSC will run from February 1, 12 AM PST (GMT - 8) to February 15, 12 AM PST.

If you are interested in participating, please reply to this journal, or send me a note so that I can add you to the participant list!

I look forward to seeing your entries!

Hey guys...
I'm sorry to say so, but I can't participate after all :(
I still love the idea and would love to, but at the moment, school just gets the better of me.
Will you be doing similar events again?

Hey there! Don't feel obligated to do every single day...if you only do one day and had fun with it, I'd rather you did that than do all 14 days and consider it drudgery. But of course, it's all up to you. We'll have other fun collabs, challenges, and prompts over the year, so keep an eye out on your messages. :)

Okay, thanks :)
It's quite a pity, but well. Maybe next time I'll be more lucky with the test schedules ^.^

i, uh, have already submitted this day's poem. in my defense, it's past 2pm here. and i didn't think about the whole timezones-thing. hopefully, you'll accept it anyway... (it's probably the weirdest thing i've ever written. thank you, random word generator.)

i'd like to give it a try, but i might just get overwhelmed by school...
...bah, i'm in. i'll just have to not sleep again. :dummy:
so, we're just supposed to write something following the guidelines of the sonnet-type of the day? it can be about anything? (oh, and i found this under "contests", but it's just a challenge, no prizes, right? just curious.)

No problem, if you can't finish it's all good. It can be about anything. There are no prizes besides the joy of writing a new poem and the pride of accomplishment should you last the fortnight. :)

I'll give it a try. Hopefully I won't have too much work to do this time, and access over the internet while on vacation. :)

I would be glad to give it a try. It has been to long since I've written rhyme and meter.

I guess I'll give it a try... Though I never wrote sonnets in English before, I'm definitely in :nod:

I'm in! I think we should announce this on da lit contests, mention it in the forums, and see if friends or affiliates will announce it. I can do some of that. But it will take a few days since I don't have Internet in my new place. Let me know! So excited!

I'm not very experienced in running contests/challenges, so I would appreciate your assistance. I've asked for some announcements in some of the groups that I'm in though.
