Welcome to the 2024 Frome Festival Short Story Competition.

We apologise for the slight delay in opening the competition – our website update hit a few technical problems, but all is working now.

You will notice that this year we have introduced an ‘Early Bird’ offer of just £6 per story submitted for all entries made by 31 March, so you may want to take advantage of this reduction by entering promptly this year. As always, our readers are looking forward to all your wonderful stories!
