Hello there! Are you a creative writer? Do you have a short story you want the world to see? This opportunity is JUST for you.

To qualify, aspiring contestants must write a creative story (not more than 1000 words), that’ll reflect the current “State of the Nation, and the struggle of young Nigerians seeking greener pastures”.

We love story tellers and we want the world to hear your voice. What are you waiting for? Register today and submit that short story, and 100,000 naira could be yours.


  • Any Nigerian can apply (no age and sex restrictions).
  • To register, contestants MUST pay a non refundable fee of N 5,000 only, to Kuda Bank Account – 2006345787 – Kevin Oselumhense Anetor, and send proof of payment to WhatsApp number + 234 8113105843.
