  1. This is confusing. Are these the works that made the shortlist – or are they the ones that were disqualified?

    1. @seun-odukoya, ALL the entries for the ANA/Mazariyya Prize for Teen Authors (Poetry) were disqualified. Apparently the teenagers no sabi anything!
      Only God knows what the judges went through from the entries.

  2. No need to blame the teenagers. We need good creative writing teachers and exercises to stimulate the kind of creativity that merits awards. Where were these prizes when I was a teenager?
