Awards, Awards, Everywhere!

Today I am giving away lost of awards! First I am glad to announce the winner of The Mighty Pen award...


Fida is an amazing and uplifting poet. She has a wonderful poetry blog over at A Poet Named Fida.

Fida's entry was a poem, I liked her unique approach to using the prompt. Also, I totally identified with the theme and sentiment of the poem.

There were so many wonderful entries it made choosing a winner hard. So, I decided to create another award for Honorable Mentions. If you are a current or previous Honorable Mention in the The Mighty Pen Contest go ahead and grab the award below.

Honorable Mentions (past and present): Jen, The Henderson Family, Sarah Pearson, Krista M, Fida I, Spod, Summer Ross, Kelley, David Jace
