If you’re a Jane Austen fan, you don’t want to miss this.
In the tradition of the Bulwer-Lytton Contest and the Bad Hemingway and Bad Faulkner contests, here’s your chance pen a scene of a “classic” novel Jane Austen never wrote.
How is it done?
- Write a scene no longer than 800 words.
- You are free to determine plot, characters, and setting.
- Obviously the style must parody Austen.
- Other rules apply, which you can read about here.
The top reader-voted scene will receive special recognition in Bad Austen, the book. So … go forth and write like Jane Austen!
