It is with great pleasure that we announce to you, the winning Poem and Short Story!

Having delebrated and pondered for months after months due to the caliber of entries that made the shortlist, the team of Judges and experienced readers have finally found common ground!

Two poems, (METAMORPHOSIS and RIGHTEOUS FURY), battled till the end, with RIGHTEOUS FURY coming up on top for its display of culture, passion, and uniqueness!

RIGHTEOUS FURY was written and submitted by Aforkeya Ese, a 100 level student of Nursing in Ugbowo Campus.

The first runner up poem, METAMORPHOSIS, was written and submitted by Wayne A. Samuel from Ekehuan Campus.

The Short Story category was not a tad easy, yet again, the council of Judges were faced with a task even greater!

Two Stories locked horns in the pursuit of greatness, alas, One story had to emerge winner inspite of the motion held by some of the judges to grant the tittle to both contenders!

Okafor Anthony chidera’s  WOLVES OF DESERT battled with Chicotovwe Christopher’s DREAMS OF THE UNDEAD with Christopher’s short story emerging as the winner!
