An Invitation to the Party...

Every year, I have so many people discovering Austen in August for the first time, or realizing belatedly that it even is August (trust me, it sneaks up on me, too), and feeling a little bummed that it's "too late" for them to contribute something or share about a cool thing they learned/saw/read. 

But it's never too late! 

The internet is a vast and varied place, and I'm constantly stumbling across Austen tidbits to save and share with you -- and even then, I know there's still so much more out there to find! So if you've come across a piece of Austen-related news, saw or read an underappreciated or forgotten adaptation, watched a funny youtube sendup of Persuasion, found a really great twitter thread breaking down every example of Mrs Bennet's nervous complaints, or even wrote a fascinating-funny-thought-provoking Austenesque article -- basically, any piece of Austenery you've come across that or created yourself that you think is neato -- please share it in the comments!

I want to know about it all, I want to be reminded of it if I've forgotten it, and I want you to do my homework for me, and help me add to this year's Austen in Your Interwebs post (which is always so much fun to put together)!

And of course, if you find yourself taken by the Spirit of Jane, and want to bring forth a brand new piece into the world, you can find the html for this year's blog banner below, to add to your post and make it Official!

  1. I don't know if this counts, but Willow & Thatch had an article 'Why Jane and Emma Can't Be Friends' they posted earlier this year: https://www.willowandthatch.com/why-arent-emma-woodhouse-jane-fairfax-friends/

    In truth, they have several Austen-related articles and updates on Austen dramas that you might find curious.

  2. I've been inspired to attempt to create a "which Austen should I read" flowchart. *Because I'm not writing enough AiA posts in 2021 already*. :D


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
