Two hundred years ago, traumatized by her parents' decision
to give up the rectory in Hampshire where she grew up, Jane
Austen found herself unable to write for a decade. During
that time she moved from one rented property to another, and
it was only when her brother Edward offered her a permanent
home in his Chawton House Estate that she was able to pick
up her pen again. In fact her time spent there was so
productive that all of her novels were written or published
while living there.
The Jane Austen Short Story Competition celebrates the
author, her works and the home that allowed her to write
some of the most beloved and enduring novels ever written.
Dancing with Mr. Darcy features the winning piece of fiction
and nineteen other stories, with introductions from Sarah
Waters and Rebecca Smith, the great-great-great-great-great
niece of Jane Austen.
