Poetry Theme:

“Be a voice for freedom! Our jury is looking for poetry on freedom this week..” @theleagueofpoetsblog

Do you have a story that inspires the themes of freedom and change? Tell us about it this week. If you are a writer who has freedom in your writing, please submit a poem or short story on the theme of freedom and change. We need you to show off your imagination and fresh ideas! The idea of this week’s competition is to encourage emerging and established writers to create pieces that use the theme of freedom and change for inspiration, in any form. It’s our belief that this encourages readers to expand their ideas about what can be done about inequality and inspires them to find new ways of expressing themselves.
