Finally, a chance for all that Jane Austen fanfic to pay off...

The fine people at The Republic of Pemberley are hosting a writing contest focused on Jane Austen-inspired short stories. If you are an unpublished author of legal age, your Austen-esque story could be included in the upcoming anthology Jane Austen Made Me Do It, tentatively scheduled to be published by Ballantine next fall. Manuscripts must be submitted between January 1, 2011 and February 13, 2011, and the grand prize is both publication in the anthology and payment of $500. Click here for the complete rules, and good luck!

Yeah, I'm pretty excited. Plus, the list of "real" authors who will be contributing is really great, too!
