Writing Competition: 5th Teecoks Writing Competition

The annual Teecoks Creative writing competition is here. The theme for this year is ‘Flipping the script: An Unemployment story’

Towunmi Coker Literary Initiative is dedicated to effecting needed societal changes through literature, arts and culture. Part of our program includes the Yearly Teecoks creative writing competition among high school students in Lagos state, Nigeria. Call for entries for this year which is the fifth has now begun.

Students are expected to submit entries on fiction where they are to write a creative story of not more than 1000 words in line with the theme. Or submit a work of poetry of not more than 30lines in line with the theme. We are open to submission from now (September 2017) till Friday 10th November 2017. Entries would not be received after the deadline.

TCLI expects students to submit purely original works as pliagarised works will be penalised. Schools authorities and teachers should ensure that all rules are adhered to and imbibe discipline in their students.


The writing competition is among students in secondary schools in Lagos state.
