Epic! will be back in 2018

Each year, our Epic! Short Story competition gives aspiring young writers throughout the country access to a national writing challenge, as well as the chance to engage in a conversation about issues affecting homeless people. Whilst The Footpath Library is dedicated to forging opportunities for young writers, we are faced with resource challenges that also impact on our core business of giving books to those in need. ¬†With this in mind, it is regretful that, due to funding shortages, The Footpath Library’s Epic! short story competition will not be running in 2017. We do look forward to an even bigger and better Epic! in 2018 – please stay tuned by signing up for our newsletter and following us on Facebook and Twitter! If you wish to make a donation to support the work we do, you can do so here. If your business is interested in supporting Epic! through sponsorship, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We wish to thank all of the sponsors and volunteers who have helped to make Epic! possible – we look forward to your continued support in 2018.
