Ellie Gorden-Moershel's piece "The Record", was selected as the first winner for The Sarah Awards 2015 Very, Very Short, Short, Stories Contest. It was inspired by Sarah Lawrence writing faculty Mary Morris' prompt, 'The Gem Sisters slept in the order they were born." Here is what the judges had to say.
“In 2 minutes and 45 seconds, Ellie Gordon-Moershel puts us in the seat of an unknown main character, waiting to travel, somewhere, we don’t know. Through this recording we get a glimpse of her life, where she has been, and who she has known. The script is elegant and moving, light and deep at the same time. With a simplistic and brilliant sound design Ellie Gordon-Moershel creates a true gem.”
