The event (War Of Words 8), as always, will involve Poets from all over Nigeria and other African countries coming on stage to compete against each other in what will be an epic battle of wits, wordplay and intellect. The standard and quality of the poets are guaranteed.

2. Selection and announcement of the 60 finalists which will hold over a period of 2 to 4 weeks.
3. The main event (on stage performance of the finalists) is scheduled to hold over 6 weeks and will feature the 60 finalists in 4 quarterfinals, one semifinal and a Grand Final.
