Speaking on the imperative of the workshop, Director, Brands and Experience, Etisalat Nigeria, Elvis Ogiemwanye, said the telco saw the need to organize the training session after the panel of judges for the Etisalat Flash Fiction Award announced that there was no winner for the 2016 Flash Fiction Prize as none of the entries received met the levels of creativity, quality and excellence required for the award of the Prize.

“The workshop is our attempt at ensuring that the expectations of the Flash Fiction Award is properly communicated and well understood by the aspiring participants. We believe that this will in turn lead to a significant improvement in the quality of the entries that will be submitted for the 2017 Flash Fiction Award” He said.
