Winged Pen Celebration!!!

The Winged Pen hit a couple of

exciting milestones recently.

Drum roll please!

Thank you followers!!!

Thank you subscribers!!!

Thank you to everyone who has shared our

posts and recommended us to their peers!!!

To celebrate we thought we’d do something a little fun—a contest to say thank you to the KidLit writing community who has supported us.

In the comments, we invite you to describe your current WIP in 5 emojis.



We’ll randomly pick a winner out of the TriWizard Cup to receive a critique on the first

2000 words

of their current picture book, middle-grade story, or young adult WIP by EIGHT members of The Winged Pen.


Feedback from EIGHT different Winged Pen members on TWO THOUSAND WORDS of your masterpiece! Unlike our monthly 8 on Eight contest, the critique will be via email instead of on the blog.IMG_2750
