The White Mosquito Flash Fiction Challenge

The White Mosquito Flash Fiction Challenge

Compliments of the Yuletide, my naija people!

Would have sent a chicken, but mine escaped. However, I offer something better.

All passionate and skilled creative writers, please take note.
The White Mosquito presents a Flash Fiction Challenge themed around the African culture as well as the promise and excitement the New year brings. The best part is…wait for it….there would be prizes given!

This edition is woven around the New Year – the promise and excitement it holds. Also, stories must depict the African culture – beliefs, festivals, systems etc – both in narrative and plotting.

First prize winner gets a sum of 10000 naira only.
Second prize winner gets a sum of 5000 naira only.

Moderations will be handled by a panel of selected writers from the Nairaland community in three stages.
