Winner's of #WEP THE KISS Challenge 2021

Hello everyone! Thank you for participating in the WEP 2021 February challenge THE KISS. The response to the first artistic prompt didn't disappoint. The entries were varied and brilliant! You can imagine trying to choose three winners out of all that brilliance.



Since we're still keeping things lite, there will be no blurbs again this month. But if you still haven't read the entries, just follow this Link to THE KISS!



SHORT LIST
It's never easy to decide on a shortlist, and this challenge was no exception. After much debate, including some writers not shown here, the final shortlist was sent to our judge, Nick Wilford. We've added a link for you to check them out if you didn't get to read them.

COMMENTING
We would like to thank all of you who commented on all/most of the entries. Such a crucial part of making WEP work. Though we didn't count them this time around again, we still notice and appreciate your thoughtful responses to each entry.


CRITIQUE PRIZE
As you all know, the winner of each challenge receives a critique prize along with the opportunity to Guest Post here at WEP. You can check out the generous contributors in our sidebar. This month, Yolanda Renée, yours truly, is offering to give: 

- feedback, or a content edit on your short story, flash fiction, 

or 

-she’ll beta read your latest WIP and give a written critique.



NOW, LET'S CONGRATULATE OUR WINNERS

THE WINNER OF FEBRUARY[S 2021 CHALLENGE
THE KISS IS:



Congratulations, Jemi, for your entry, Sin and Sunshine.

Nick wrote: "Beautiful, romantic, devastating. The ending hits hard."

Jemi, please link the badge to your flash and post it on your blog. You've also won this month's fabulous critique prize! If you can't avail yourself of the prize, please email Yolanda so we can offer it to the next on the list.

Because we struggled to choose winners from such amazing entries, many of you missed out which is unfortunate. A new WEPper, Steph Wolmarans, stunned us with her entry for The Kiss. We unanimously agreed to award her with a special prize which we do when we're moved to. So, Steph, Olga created this badge expressly for you.


Steph, thanks for joining us in February. Please link the badge to your entry.



Stay safe and well everyone, here's to a super creative Spring and our preparations for the next WEP Challenge in April...FREEDOM MORNING! If you didn't win this challenge, there's always this one!

  15. My name is MICHAEL RACHEL I am here to make a review about how Dr. DAVID helped me in fixing my marriage and also to those out there seeking for help and advice on how to save your broken marriage or relationship, few months ago I was having issues with my husband I noticed he has been having an affair with another young lady in his place of work I confronted him but he got angry and say to my face that it’s true, as if that was not enough he went ahead by telling me he doesn’t love me anymore that he wanted a divorce I was to devastated and confused, I pleaded with him that I don’t want a divorce but he insisted, before then I had heard about Dr. DAVID while browsing on the internet how he use to help people with broken marriages and relationships, I gave it a thought and I decided to contact him, he promise to put a smile on my face again, I followed his instructions and after 3days I was so surprised to see my husband kneeling before me and apologizing for what he had said about the divorce, this is something I never expected, I thank Dr. DAVID for what he has done for me, now am living happily with my husband and he has stopped seeing the other woman. Please if you are having issues like this I advice you to contact Dr. DAVID on Email : awesomespelltemple@gmail.comwebsite:  http://awesomespelltemplem.website2.me/WhatsApp: +2347040654140
