The Little Matters and Everyday Truths competition invites letter writing, poetry and fiction


The competition is inpsired by a quote from a letter from Jane Austen to her sister Cassandra: Little matters they are, to be sure, but highly important. Writers entering the competition are invited to send in work inspired by everyday details.

There are three age categories (5-11, 11-17 and adults) in each category: letter writing, poetry and fiction. There will be a winner in each age range per category. The winning pieces will be featured in a special online gallery and the winners will receive an annual pass to Jane Austen’s House and a goody bag from the gift shop.

Enter letters up to 500 words, poetry up to 30 lines and fiction up to 500 words.

Entry is free.

The closing date is 30 October
