Write Like Jane Austen (Never Did)
If you love Jane Austen's writing but also love to read the parodies and pastiches and what's more, think by now you could probably do a pretty good job of imitating Jane yourself, then the Bad Austen Contest was created just for you. Write like Jane Austen but NOT! In the continuing and egregious tradition of the Annual Bulwer Lytton contest - where the worst and most laughable come first - write up a classic 800 word scene that Jane Austen never dreamed of writing (or if she did, sense and sensibility prevailed) and possibly win a bit of money or other prizes, even eventual publication. See all the details at the Bad Austen site.
