Last Saturday, the laureates of the Fedactio Short Story Contest 2013 were officially disclosed at the literary closing event in Brussels.

The first laureate in the ‘Youth’ category is Best Durieux from West-Flanders with his work titled ‘Icy Hades’. The second and third prize respectively go to Kristien Spooren for her short story ‘Stain’ and Marjolein Schutz for her story ‘Children Stories’. The laureates in the ‘Adult’ category were announced by jury member Philip Hoorne. The first prize went to Cat Calcoen from Ghent for her story ‘Suzy’. The second spot is also for a talent from Ghent, namely Valérie Du Pré. She won an e-reader for her short story ‘Strange Company’. Finally, Heleen Van Grootvan from Mechelen came in third. In attendance of the president of the Flemish Fund for Literature, Jos Geysels, the debuting talents performed their work for the audience.
