28 Sonnets Later is back! And, like The Godfather Part 2, we’ve added a layer of complexity!
Last February, the four of us
took it in turns to write and post a sonnet a day on this little blog. We
were so happy with the results that we’ve decided to try it again. This
year, however, we’re going to attempt something that (to our knowledge)
has not been tried before: we’re going to group-write a crown of
What’s a crown of sonnets? It’s simple: the last line of the first
sonnet becomes the first line of the second sonnet. The second sonnet’s
last line becomes the first line of sonnet three, and so on – until
sonnet 28. This last sonnet will take its first line from the end of
sonnet 27, and its last line will be the first of sonnet 1. If you’re
still confused, don’t worry – you only have to read them. And spread
them around on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks to all those who followed us last year and bought the book – we hope you enjoy the next 28 days and poems as much as we do!
