Twenty-six writers participated in the seminar which was held at the Sarova Stanley Hotel in November 2017. Fourteen of these entered the competition and submitted their short stories.
Following the selection by the jury comprising Prof. Carlo A. Martigli, Prof. Giacomo Brunoro, Prof. Matteo Strukul, Prof. Paola Ranzato and Dr. Matteo Ogliari, it is my pleasure to congratulate Ms. Vera Omwocha on having been nominated as the winner. The Tito Livio Award offers a return air-ticket to Italy, board and lodging for four days and the participation in the 4th edition of the prestigious Chronicae Literary Festival in Padua, Italy, in 2018. An honour indeed for a young writer.'
The writing contest was dubbed 'Tito Livio Literary Contest' in honor of Roman historian Titus Livius (born in Padua) who died 2,000 years ago.
