River Bend Bookshop Press

Sonnet Writing Contest with the Connecticut Shakespeare Festival and River Bend Bookshop


River Bend Bookshop is proud to host authors, poets, and artists in our space, and in print.  It is our goal to serve as the literary heart of our community.  To that end, we have created a press dedicated to bringing you fantastic works of fiction, poetry, and memoir.  

Our first endeavor is a poetry anthology, in partnership with the Connecticut Shakespeare Festival.  We are holding a sonnet writing contest and will be accepting submissions in July.  Return in mid-June for more information.
