Grand Prize Winner Awake the Sinners by Jessica Romagnoli Jessica Romagnoli was born in Bologna, Italy. As a kid, she grew up developing a huge passion for lasagne and books–and the latter encouraged her to start writing short stories and a novel she’ll finish one day (as she’s promised to its characters a long time ago).
