In July, Jane Austen & Co. hosted our first creative writing contest on the theme of "Dressing with Jane Austen." We challenged participants to imagine their morning as Jane Austen heroines: What would they wear? What would they do after getting dressed?
All of the entries were fantastic, but our judges, including Hilary Davidson, were especially delighted by a few. We are pleased to announce the winners of our contest. Watch the blog in the coming days to read the winning entries.
Grand Prize Winner: Cassandra Chambers, “Letter to Frances"
Second Prize Winner: Regina Rose, “Excerpts from Lucy Collins’ letter"
High School Category:
High School Winner: Margaret Chaney, “Lydia Wickham’s Letter”
Leslie Hawley, "Regency Dress" Lynn Slowden, "Letter" Kimberly Costa, "My Dearest Mariah”
Congratulations to all winners! If you missed this contest, there's still a chance to enter our next contest, based on the theme of "Crafting with Jane Austen." For more information and to enter, click here.
