Home is

I love the work of The Footpath library.    The philosophy of this project is that books enrich lives and everyone should have access to them.

At the moment they have the Epic Short Story Competition.   It’s on a topic dear to my heart ‘Home is’   What does it mean to you or someone you know? Express it in a short story.  Whilst you’re visiting the site why not think about how you can support them in the work they do.


To find out more visit Footpath Library – Epic Competition.
