One week to go before the 200th Anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice!
To lead up to this “Austentatious” event we’ll be taking a look at the novel’s characters this week.
Next MONDAY, JANUARY 28th is the deadline for the super fun, creative, Jane Austen “Essay” Contest. I’m really looking forward to reading/viewing your unique takes on the novel. Send you entries to: ritaLOVEStoWRITE@gmail.com
So get your creative juice flowing for the Jane Austen “Essay” Contest to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice.
Deadline: 28 January 2013
THIS JUST IN: New prize — just for entering…the first 25 people who send in an entry will receive a cool refrigerator magnet like this brand new Austen Neon magnet…
Any one can participate! Couple of RULES here:
- TRY and keep it under 1200 words please.
- The “essay” should be Pride and Prejudice centric.
- Please submit your “essay” in English.
- Have fun with it!
- Oh, and no pornography == THIS is Austen after all!
Prizes include… All entries will be published in an upcoming special edition of the award-winning ritaLOVEStoWRITE blog. All entries will receive a participation banner for your blog. The top three entries will receive a special “Finalist” banner for their Blog Page, and the top entry will win a Darcy mug! (Please make sure to include an email contact — which I will remove before posting so the whole world doesn’t see it.)
Deadline: 28 January 2013 (That’s the anniversary date of the novel’s publication)
*I seriously encourage you to think outside the box. For you illustrators out there… how about some character studies? Are you a playwright? Why not treat us to a re-imagined scene or two?… This should be a fun expression of your love for Austen and Pride and Prejudice. Don’t be afraid of a little well written/thought out fan fiction. (But no vampires, please.)
AND … Although I’m not going to snark your intellectual property I strongly suggest you throw a copyright on all your original material in case any one else takes a liking to it.
