A Sonnet of Your Own

Work Time

Now that you have a better idea of how sonnets work, it’s time to start writing your own Shakespearean sonnet!

  • Begin by writing two lines of iambic pentameter, the first two lines of your sonnet.
  • When you’re done, share your first two lines with a partner.
  • Are both partners’ first two lines in iambic pentameter? If not, help each other fix them so they comply with the requirements.
