Congrats everyone. We can only get better. We appreciate our judges, writers and the audience. Thanks for being part of this journey.Next up will be the topics for week 11.
Ebube Ezeadum has won the N10,000 cash prize for week 10 with his essay titled: What Happens When Like Poles Are Allowed To Attract.
The writer flowed easily in this beautiful prose. He made an effort to research the subject, interrogated all sides of the argument biblically and otherwise before reaching a very logical conclusion. A judge described Ebube as “one beautiful writer”.
Congrats Ebube, we hope to read more from you.
Saberedowo Oluwafisayo: Absolutely beautiful! Well-referenced. He had compelling points to support his position. However, a better-developed essay with a stronger conclusion would have earned the writer more marks and perhaps the prize. Keep writing!
Folarin Oluwatimilehin: Folarin has been consistent. In this essay, however, he derailed a bit by focusing on the Pope rather than the effects of the Pope’s pronouncement on the Institution of Marriage. His conclusion seemed rushed but a good essay nevertheless.
Oladejo Victor: Victor has a way with words. He was first noticed for his artistry and creative imagery. However, his missive this time seemed to be lost in excessive imagery. His tenses and punctuation needs to be worked on too. But it is still another good attempt.
