Attention steemians. Introducing the voiceshares poetry contest.
This is a contest sponsored by @voiceshares
Voice of Steemit is a project that has been started for those who are in need of help... a voice to speak out for those whose voices have been suppressed for far too long. It is a token backed community project to create a support system for those of our fellow Steemians in need of help.
Voice of Steemit addresses various untold stories from social, political, regional and cultural backgrounds.
It is an initiative led by @rideofpassion and backed by @officialfuzzy.
The core team is comprised of @looftee, @rgba, @motionemotion, @l0k1, @mialinnea, @densgirl94, @shrey and @patelincho.
