The Sonnet Issue

Sonnets by 26 Authors, Previously Published in Beltway Poetry Quarterly

Over the fifteen years of the journal’s existence, we’ve had the honor to publish many fine sonnets.  As we compiled The Sonnet Issue, the editors found ourselves referring back to our favorites, and we include links to them here.

[Note: for some, you will have to scroll down on an author’s web page to find the individual poem.]
