The theme of the next contest is "Unknown Pre-written Character". The idea of this contest will be to take the winning character and write a short story of your choosing using him/her. To keep things democratic, I have just fabricated the below four characters. Please select the character you'd most like to use. The winning character will be launched as a "theme" of sorts. Do not vote if you have no intention of entering the contest. Thanks Name: Chinwe Adetola. Born: Abuja, Nigeria, 1995. Age: 16. Sex: F. Current Occupation: Student.
