Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind”, so said Virginia Woolf and you have truly embodied her thoughts in actions by flooding us with entries for our contest called the – Freedom Fest. We have received an overwhelming response and are truly awed by the calibre and quality of submissions. We have also taken in reckoning all poems submitted to date on ‘Freedom‘ for the purpose of this campaign.

It has indeed been an arduous but utterly liberating process to go through the submissions and feel at one with every single one of you. We are indeed blessed to have facilitated the coming together of such talent on our site and will continue to strive to make it a place for your words and thoughts to belong, freely.

We are proud to announce the winners of the Freedom Fest under five categories as below:

  1. Best Spoken Word poem
    American Dreams by reynardxvii
    This poem truly embodies the free human spirit which has the courage to strive for freedom from all the degeneration and corruption brought on by trivialisation of values in modern times. Kudos!
  2. Best Prose Poem
    Caffe Vita. Olympia, Wa. by Chaise Rocco Levy
    This poem speaks with the voice of youth, unfettered and unchained, striving to break free of shackles and exercise the freedom to love and be at harmony with the world, shattering norms and breaking barriers! An adrenaline rush but so full of honest emotion and a fluid style of writing where the words simply flow, free and untamed.. An absolute winner!
  3. Best Long Poem
    Which Way Did Liberty Go? by Archana Kaul
    A poignant piece of verse which will touch and emotional chord of not only every indian but every citizen of every nation which has fought for its freedom. The poem captures the hope, the sadness and the faith that liberty is that which each one of us needs to hold aloft. A heartfelt rendition of our times and travails, this one stands tall and free!
  4. Best Short Poem
    Little Lives in Between Little Deaths by Lawrence Chew
    A poem which truly depicts the lives of multitudes, going through the rote of living but are we really alive or free? Most readers will relate to this piece of verse in some way or the other for it captures the essence of bondage imposed upon our daily lives. Worthy winner for sure.
  5. Best poem on women’s emancipation
    Freedom? by Carmen Shantipriya Nanu
    This is a category special to our hearts and so relevant in The India of today where most women are still seen and not heard, sometimes not even that. And this poem truly captures the helplessness of the caged bird who has very little choice but to just be, when will she be truly free? The metaphors used are so apt and beautiful..This one is for all the women!

We hope you will continue to bestow us with the generosity of your thoughts through the written words in future and we shall be announcing the next contest soon. A ‘happy’ surprise is coming your way soon.

Until then,
Stay HighOnPoems!
