Countdown to $100 Amazon Gift Card


It’s not too late to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card. This is for everyone who has a book in progress or ready to be published. Nothing centers a story like your pitch. It doesn’t have to be polished to a shine (that’s what we’re here for).

To join, email critiquecamp@gmail.com with your name and the date you’d like to join the online session (April 12th at 7 p.m. or April 13th at 7 p.m.). 

Each session will be recorded and available to download. You must register to get the access code for these sessions. You do not have to attend the live feed (they will be recorded for your convenience).

 This is a free service for all Writers of Kern members. If you’re not a current member you’ll be sent an invoice for $25 that can be applied to your future membership.

Winner will be drawn April 14th and recorded for all participants.

Good luck and happy pitching!
