Frome Festival Short Story Competition 2019

This year is the 15th anniversary of the Frome Festival Short Story Competition and we are marking it in a very special way. Tyler Keevil, our first-ever winner in 2004 with his story ‘Mangleface’, is returning in 2019 as competition judge. Since 2004, Canadian-born Tyler has won further prizes, published three novels and a short story anthology, written screenplays and articles and become a lecturer in English Literature and Creative Writing at Cardiff University.

The competition opened on January 1st and runs until Friday 31st May. The results will be announced, as usual, on the second Sunday of Frome Festival: July 14th.
