REDWOOD CITY, CA, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Paul Kiritsis is pleased to announce the fourth Dorothea Dix Award for all those who have overcome or battled mental or physical illness, disability, or injury. For 2023-4, the competition will revolve around Kiritsis’s 2023 short story collection Tales of a Spiritual Sun. Entrants are required to answer one of the following two questions.

TALES OF A SPIRITUAL SUN: REVISITING THE HEALING POWER OF MYTH

1. In classical mythology the Judgement of Paris is frequently cited as the event which triggered the Trojan War. The climactic moment comes when Paris, a prince of Troy, awards the golden apple to the goddess Aphrodite after she offers him an irresistible bribe in the guise of the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Troy. In bequeathing Aphrodite the apple Paris, acknowledges her as the “fairest” of the Olympian goddesses. What does the phrase “For the fairest” mean to you?

OR

2. Aphrodite, who features prominently in the Eros and Psyche retelling, is the goddess of beauty. Her name in Greek means foam-born, alluding to her violent origins and the inextricable connection between all-encompassing love (union) and the friction of war (separation). Give your own contemporary account of the birth of Aphrodite.
