This award, inaugurated in 2009, is for short fiction inspired by Austen’s novels and has attracted entries from all over the world.
The two previous competitions were judged by celebrity novelists Sarah Waters and Michèle Roberts and resulted in the publication of anthologies entitled ‘Dancing with Mr Darcy’ and ‘Wooing Mr Wickham’. We are offering cash prizes, writers’ retreats and publication to the 2014 winners.
