Lately, I've been scrolling through poems on NMG, and loving everything, but finding the poems on equal rights for women, gun control, gay rights, racism and other topics that are important issues today truly inspiring. I want to read more poems from kids around my age. This might be a nice way to adress hot topics that we believe in and write poems about these issues, and in the end, have a collection of moving poems all from girls around the world, about important issues we all believe in. It is also a contest, so I will be judging the poems, but that's not the point of the discussion. If you don't want your poem to be a part of this, but don't want your poem to be judged, that's ok! The point is to feel inspired.
Must be tagged, "ihaveadream"
this is for organization. even if you're not entering the contest, the poems will all be in one place.
If entering contest, tag (as well as "ihaveadream) "ibelieve"
Must be about an important issue today, not about how pineapple should be on pizza
Put a "heavy topic" warning on your poem if needed
Deadline for contest is August 4th
EDIT: You can write more than one poem.
EDIT #2: Only up to five poems please.
Edit #3 (xD): You can only enter five poems for the contest, but you can write however many you want just for the sake of it.
Quick reminder that this isn't meant to be stressful. Just supposed to be a way for us to have a collection of poems on issues today.
Can't wait to see your entries, contest or not!
