The New Man Writing Contest is a yearly prose and poetry writing  contest powered by The New Man Movement, based on a believe that writing is one of many means with a power to changing men from the old to the  new. The New Man Writing Contest is targeted at the  promotion of literary works by combing through the forest of literary virginity amongst students of secondary schools in Africa.

Call for Submissions

Yearly, The New Man Movement Calls for submissions into the New Man Writing Contest. These submissions are thereafter screened by literary and language experts.
