We are thrilled to announce the winner of the 1st Twist & Twain Short Story Contest. Our panel of judges, which included Ernest Brawley from the United States, Dhruba Hazarika from India and Breanne Mc Ivor from Trinidad & Tobago, is unanimous in their decision that Müller’s Mosaico by David Clémenceau is the best piece of fiction from among the many entries received. His story deals with the current xenophobia trending in Germany against the hordes of migrant refugees fleeing their war-ravaged lands and entering Europe, only to be despised by the local populace. For his outstanding work of fiction David Clémenceau receives the prize pot of Rs. 25,000. The response we received for our maiden contest is overwhelming. We thank all of the participants. Our next contest will begin soon with more prizes. So get ready, the next winner may be you.
