About the Author


Nicholas Korn is a poet, playwright, filmmaker and composer. The first volume of Wild Sonnets was published in June 2018, with the second following in October 2019. The Wild Sonnets: Volume III (201-300) was released in March 2021

His stage play, Delirium’s Daughters, was featured Off-Broadway in 2015, and his film, Revel’s Rivals, won the award for Best Animated Feature at the 2012 Louisville International Festival of Film. In the early aughts, he founded and ran Stage First Cincinnati – a theater company dedicated to the ancient Greeks, Moliere and the occasional Shakespeare. The company staged 23 productions at Cincinnati's Aronoff Center for the Arts.

As an artist, he combines classicism with a curiosity for all things digital – honoring equally the tradition and the trend.

He has been a member of the Greater Cincinnati arts community for over 30 years.


As a poet, I have always been deeply connected to the sonnet form, and decided a few years ago to create variation that was both more modern and of my own making.

?The structure I decided to use is built on two seven line stanzas, each capped with a rhyming couplet. The preceding lines are basically blank verse - meant to echo the feel and fluency of a soliloquy.

Since writing the first Wild Sonnet in 2016, I have added over 300 to the sequence. When I reach the next 100 poems, I publish them as a individual book and add the new work to a digital version that contains the entire collection.

This is a lifelong project for me – and although the feel of the poems may shift slightly with time, my dedication to this particular form does not. What the eventual fate of these poems will be is not for me to say, but I hope those who read them will feel that the power of this form has been both honored and expanded.
