POETSGIG – Thoughts are ideas scattered in your head. When written forms a sentence. When rhymed, it forms a phrase and singing it blooms a beautiful poem.

If you are a blogger or a passionate writer who desire to inspire others with good insights, your works are welcome.

Or if you have good story to tell and looking for some exposure to publish your works, be it in any form of writings – essay, poetry, short story or creative writing, it does not matter.

Write what’s in your heart. Tell us your stories.

Good theme means either serious, funny or witty as long it would give positive motivation to your audience.

Do you have useful tips and tricks, how to’s or Top n’s to share?
