News from one of our previous winners:

I thought you would like to know that one of Frome Festival’s previous winners has won The William Faulkner Literary Contest in New Albany, Mississippi. Apparently, I was the first UK winner to win the short story category since the competition was established in 1997. The story was called Piano Solo. 
Also, (competition successes are obviously like buses – nothing for ages then two at once) another short story of mine is on the shortlist for the HG Wells Short Story Competition. That story is called, The Last Flight of La Librairie d’Afrique du Nord. The results for that are out at the end of November. 
I have had some successes in the meantime. My novel My Beautiful Imperial was published at the end of 2017. It was translated into Spanish, entitled Mi Querido Imperial, in 2018.
A more recent novella called The Significance of Swans, came 2nd in the New Welsh Writing Awards in 2019.
I will always be grateful to Frome Festival for helping me on my way.
Best wishes, 
Rhiannon Lewis, Winner of the 2017 Short Story Competition with The Jugs Stay with the Dresser
