Topics: Essay Competition Week 27.


Welcome back from Easter break. For week 27 of the #CmonionlineEssayCompetition we have decided to start implementing some suggestions from our writers.

We will now have two categories, creative writing and opinion articles.
So choose a topic from your preferred genre and write to possibly emerge as one of the winners of our N20,000 cash prize.

Creative writing topics:

  1. Write about a bus trip involving multiple personalities and incidents but start your story with an ending and work backwards towards the beginning.
  2.  Your parents tell you that they actually don’t know whose child you are. Weave a story around this horrific scenario.

Opinion article topics:

  1.  The minister of communications Isa Pantami is currently enmeshed in a scandal linking him to terrorist groups. Interrogate and give your opinion on the issue with possible recommendations.
  2.  Write a discursive analysis around the allegation and denial of the CBN printing money to fund the economy by Edo state governor Obaseki and the Minister of finance respectively.

NB: These are topics and not necessarily titles, so you can caption your essay as you wish but please make it smart and brief.

The word count is between (750–1500 )± 10%

We will publish the essays as they come in for the audience and judges to read. Endeavour to submit early to make our job easier.

Submit on or before Thursday 22/04/2021 at 11.59 pm.

Please endeavour to read our general rules before submitting your work. Pay particular attention to items 2 & 9 because many entries have been trashed for not
