Click Here to Submit Your Poem

Every year, author-zigo.com provides the opportunity  for people across the world to tell their stories in the form of poetry. As such, we call on you to submit one or more poems under the headings: justice, rights (human rights), freedoms and liberties.

We understand millions of people around the world, especially in the less advanced countries, are living under repressive, authoritarian regimes, where there is no freedom of speech and the rights of minorities trampled upon. In these regimes, human rights abuses are on the rise and citizens have little or no access to justice. 

This is an opportunity for you to use your voice and pen, in the form of poetry, to create awareness about your predicament. You can decide to participate in a contest or submit a poem, without enrolling.
