Please Support ‘Dressed Like A Prince’ in The Etisalat Flash Fiction Prize

Dear family,friends,and well wishers,

Compliments of the season. I trust that you have been fine, and from a glance at our timeline, I can see that we are still doing what we do best– telling Naija’s stories. I am glad and honoured to be one of you, and I want you to know that.

I am here to ask for your support for the Etisalat Flash Fiction Prize entry : Dressed Like A Prince.

Dressed Like A Prince (DLAP) is a 300 word story that narrates the events in the lives of two Nigerian children on Independence day. It is a tale of hope, lack, dreams, and pain. In its brevity it tries to show the realities of modern day Nigeria: Child Abuse, insecurity, poverty amidst plenty, government insensitivity, the plight of the girl child, jungle justice, the death of talent, the brevity of life and more. It is not a perfect story but I hope you will read it and perhaps like it. I hope you will like it enough to give me your support.

To support DLAP, Please visit this link: www.etisalatprize.com/dressed-like-a-prince
