10 better uses for a copy of Epigram
It’s that paper you sometimes see in the library
Ah Epigram, the lonely, wind battered warrior of print journalism trudging through the storm of disappointment down low in the valley of ill-repute.
It’s not a good time to be a real life tangible newspaper. Ever since we all became obsessed with our phones and social media, the printed student rag has become an oft ignored symbol of the past.
As a result, those piles of Epigram copies in the library and every fresher hall for people to take remain sadly untouched.
We at The Tab Bristol hate to see waste of any kind and thus have constructed this helpful guide so that you too can take a copy of Epigram and use it to its fullest potential.
Here we go:
