Results for the ESSEC Short Story Competition 2014
Congrats to all the authors participating in the 2014 competition. The award ceremony on 16th May gave the following results:
1st prize and winner: Joy Habib for her story "The Things God Does Not Forgive"
Joint runners up: Roman Palmieri for "90 Miles Away" and Anne-Caroline Gallimard for "Ready"
3rd place: Sarah Cotten with "Alfred".
Joy Habib wrote a beautifully crafted story of Yasmina, her family, and her lifelong relationship with her childhood friend Yara that interweaves the theme of identity on many levels. The author can only be encouraged to write a full-length novel version of this wonderfully poignant tale.
All 50 works can be read in the paperback collection published by ESSEC Business School.
