Have you ever felt you were in a situation where you couldn’t get free? When in your life do you feel the most free?

We want to hear from you! Pen a poem, write a few sentences, get personal or funny. Write about your definition of freedom, publish it and tag “WriteHere” for an opportunity to have your essay featured on ZORA.
