Her book, Dune Song, received the special Jury Prize of Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche. The ambition of the prize is to celebrate the art of writing, contribute to Casablanca’s cultural enrichment and ensure the far-reaching influence of Moroccan francophone literature across the world.
Following her nomination, Anissa Bouziane obtained the representation of an American literary agent, the publication of the English version of her book by Sandstone Press UK, as well as a contract for the publication of the English version in France.
According to her, “none of this would have been possible without the attention brought by the Sofitel Prize. I will always be grateful”
