It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice remains one of the UK’s best-loved novels 200 years after its publication. And to celebrate the fact, the Bristol Women’s Literature Festival want to invite young people aged 16-25 who love Jane Austen to take part in our film and panel event later on in the year.
We’ll be bringing together novelists, critics and lovers of Austen to explore the importance of her work and to understand why this wonderful novel and the five fabulous Bennett sisters still maintain a hold on our imaginations.
But most excitingly of all, we want you to be on our panel.
We’re looking for the biggest Austen fan aged 16-25 to join our panel and celebrate Pride and Prejudice with us. All you need to do is tell us why you love Austen, and why you deserve a place in the panel, in 50 words.
If you can prove you’re Austen’s biggest fan, then there’ll be a seat at our table with your name on it.
