To celebrate Jane Austen 200 we are partnering with Hampshire Cultural Trust to launch two exciting writing competitions.
Adult Short Story Competition
To win a first prize of £1,000, we invite adults (16 and over) to send in a short story of 2017 words or fewer using this quotation from Mansfield Park as the title:
'Selfishness must always be forgiven you know, because there is no hope of a cure.'
Children's Letter Writing Competition
We are also inviting children (across Hampshire) in two age brackets, 7-11 and 12-16, to write us a letter of 400 words or under about a day in their life, real or imagined, addressed 'Dear Friend'.

Entry closing date: 28 February 2017. Good luck!
