In the Nigeria of this day, we can confidently say that the literary world is beginning to get the right attention it so deserves which basically aims at discovering new generation of writers, reviving the reading culture among young people as well as serving as a tool for social engineering and the threshold of change they so desire. It’s in this light that the organisers of the new man movement yearly organises a writing contest for African secondary school students tagged ‘The New Man Writing Contest’.
Even though entries for the 2018 edition of the contest which is held in honour of H.R.M, Oba Adedokun Abolarin Omoniyi Aroyinkeke1, the Orangun of Oke-Ila Oragun, Osun, Nigeria has been opened since November 2017, it still extends to March 21 2018 and interested students can forward their entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.The first first, second and third winning entries would be published in The New Man Writing Series which is revealed to be worth over two hundred thousand naira while other entries would be published on several literary blogs, international journals and websites.
