Writing About Home Competition Winners
We thought you might like to see some pictures of the winners of our annual writing competition, which this year had the theme of writing about home, to tie in with the Museum’s celebration of At Home with the Austens.
As you may recall the competition was open to schoolchildren in years 7 to 11. All the winning entries can be read by accessing this page here.
The Judging Panel included Rebecca Smith, teaching fellow at Southampton University and Professor Kathryn Sutherland of Oxford University, and they were very impressed by the high standard achieved by this year’s entries.
You can read their comments here.
The Jane Austen Young Writers’ Competition for 2013 will be launched towards the end of this year, and, of course, we will be delighted to let you have details of it here, so please do look out for it!
