Brighton Festival, nabokov and Lulu.com ‘Everyday Epic’ short story writing competition winners announced

Brighton Festival, nabokov and Lulu.com are delighted to announce the four winners of the ‘Everyday Epic’ short story writing competition which took place in May over the Brighton Festival celebrations. The standard of the entries were all very high and it was certainly a difficult choice to come down to the final four writers. The lucky winners will have their stories combined with the stories from the Storytelling army into the Everyday Epic anthology and published by Lulu.com.

The winners are:

Protected Housing by David Benedictus, Hove
On the threshold by Jenny Gaitskell, Lewes
Nice Light by Saba Sams, Brighton
Together we can by Beki Turner, Brighton

The judges all felt that these stories captured the spirit of the ‘Everyday Epic’ and really make the reader stop and think about how even the smallest event can be epic and life affirming or changing.  Well done to all four winners and we hope that they continue to write stories to share.

If you want to read all the winning stories and the stories from the Storytelling army once the book is published you can buy copies from http://www.lulu.com bookshop and other good retailers. To find out when the book is available to buy please follow us on our social media channels.
