Earlier this year we launched our inaugural Stoic Essay competition… and today I’m excited to announce the winner! 
We asked how Stoicism can help in our modern lives and were fortunate to have Donald Robertson, renowned Stoic and author of “How to Think Like a Roman Emperor, judge our submissions. 
I’d like to officially congratulate Lia Pas on her winning essay on Stoicism and chronic Illness… Lia has worked hard to turn her illness into inspiration with the aid of the ancient philosophy of Stoicism. You can learn a bit more about Lia and the stoic influences in her life in the very short clip below. 
As winner of the Stoic Essay Competition, Lia has won $500 as well as the feature article in this month’s Classical Wisdom Litterae Magazine, coming out this week. 
If you aren’t already a Classical Wisdom Member or magazine subscriber, you can get the magazine here.
