About EPIC

Who We Are

EPIC, the Electronic Publishing Industry CoalitionTM, was incorporated in 1998 to provide a strong voice for electronic publishing. Once an authors' organization, EPICTM has expanded to include hundreds of professionals from all facets of the electronic publishing industry: authors, publishers, editors, artists, and others. Our members work together in a unique collaboration to further the industry.

EPIC is not a publisher, but aspiring authors are invited to look at our member publishers. Check out "Our Members" for listings of our author, publisher, and other industry members.

 What We Do

ePublishing has existed for as long as there has been a digital world, but has exploded in the last decade, and EPIC has grown right along with it. ePublishing is already a major marketplace and the future will only bring greater growth. EPIC exists to help industry professionals network and share information about industry trends, promotion, and the boundless opportunities offered by ePublishing. We also offer much of our knowledge base to visitors. Browse through our pages for lots of hints, guidance, and help.

EPIC does not exist to promote any genre or style of work. Our single organizational focus is promoting ePublishing. Among our members, you'll find authors, publishers, and editors of all the most popular fiction genres, as well as non-fiction, self-help, poetry, and how-to. Our membership also includes cover artists and booksellers.

EPIC presents the eBook Awards and Ariana eBook Cover Art Awards at our annual conference, EPICon, . EPICon also features great workshops, networking, great food, and a fine time for all.

Special Programs

NVYWEPIC's members are very proud of our New Voices Young WritersTM Competition. New Voices has become a leading international competition for young authors, promoting reading and writing among middle and high school students while introducing them to the exciting world of eBooks and ePublishing. New Voices has been a launching pad into the world of publishing for many young writers, allowing them their first taste of professional feedback and encouraging them to achieve their dream of seeing their words in print. Established by EPIC in 2006, the competition accepts entries from students attending public, private, or homeschools worldwide.

The New Voices Young Writers forum is a safe place for young writers to receive guidance from industry professionals on all aspects of the writing life.

The New Voices Young Writers website is the place to go for all things New Voices Young Writers!
