Saveas Writers’ International Writing Competition 2017
‘Love & Friendship’
This year marks the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s death. To commemorate this event SaveAs Writers invite poems and short stories on any aspect of her life and works. Update her plots to the modern world of Twitter and Tinder, give poetic voice to one of her minor characters, investigate the issues that are on the margins of her work such as slavery and war. Explore these and other creative possibilities and send us your work.
