Welcome back from the summer break. I trust that it afforded you the chance to refresh for another writing season. As you may know, we made some changes which you can read here.

Important!!! Please read this post carefully to enhance your chances of winning.

For #Week37 of the #CmonionlineEssayCompetition choose a topic from your preferred genre and write to possibly emerge as one of the winners of our N60,000 cash prize.

Creative Short Story:

  1. You got home and noticed a bloodstained knife on your dining table. You know you didn’t leave it there, and you live alone. Write a story about this incident.

Research Essay:

  1. At the recently concluded education summit in the UK. President Buhari promised to increase our annual domestic education expenditure by 50% over the next two years. Critically interrogate the issues around this pledge exploring the impediments, possibilities, and potential benefits.

NB: Caption your essay as you wish but please make it smart and brief.

Important!!! The word count is (2500 )± 10%. We will publish the essays as they come in for the audience and judges to read. Please try to submit early to make our job easier. It also gives the judges more time to assess your work.

Our judges for the week are Uche Ugwu and Alex Nwangwu
