Ema Williamson

Williams-Mystic, the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport, has announced the winners of the 2012 Joseph Conrad Essay Contest, including a Millersville University student.

Ema Williamson ’15 of Millersville University won $500 for her short story “The Glass Trumpet,” a piece which features careful observations of how human beings relate to each other in the presence of the sea.  Williamson is currently in her sophomore year of undergraduate study and is focusing on anthropology, history and English.

Williamson’s story that won the award will be published in the forthcoming issue of the George Street Carnival (Millersville’s literary and arts magazine), to be released this month.
