List of the Contributors to the Passionate Penholders: Winter edition 2019

This year we at Wingless Dreamer went on a mission to discover the most passionate penholders. And let me tell you, we found even more passionate writers than we ever could have imagined! We received about 500 submissions from all around the world. Our editorial board enjoyed reading each and every piece thoroughly and we truly appreciate the efforts and dedication participants put into their work. It was a game of tug of war between the judges and the editorial team to select a winner. Finally, in the end, we were able to land on the same shore.

From our Founder:
“It doesn’t matter whether you win or lose, writing is always about expressing your emotions and we want to let you know that all the participants did a great job. We congratulate all the contestants for their work and we look forward to reading more in the near future.”-Ruchi Acharya, Wingless Dreamer Founder
