Winners of the #WEP FREEDOM MORNING Challenge 2021

Hi everyone! Thank you to everyone who participated in the WEP April challenge FREEDOM MORNING. The entries this time around were stunning! We're always impressed by the talent and creativity we see from all of you. Choosing the winners was no easy task. 


In the spirit of keeping it lite, there will be no blurbs again this month. If you still haven't read the entries (and we really think you should!), follow this link to FREEDOM MORNING!


SHORT LIST
Choosing a shortlist is always tricky. After a lot of thought and debate, we chose the following short list and sent it on to our judge, Nick Wilford. If you don't see your entry here, don't be discouraged! The competition was fierce.

COMMENTING
Thank you to all who commented. Respectful, constructive, and thoughtful comments are vital to the success of WEP. Due to the nature of this challenge, with participants often baring their heart and soul, some comments were a little hard to take. I remind writers to state the level of critique you desire. And readers, keep your comments to the point and never be disrespectful. 


CRITIQUE PRIZE
The winner of each challenge gets the opportunity to receive a critique prize. They also get the opportunity to write a guest post for WEP. Our sidebar proudly displays everyone who is offering critique prizes for 2021. You are welcome to contact any of the editors with a request for work. 

This month's critique prize is brought to us by the wonderful Christine Rains. She's generously offering a 10,000k word critique to the winner. Thank you, Christine!
