Are you all clamoring for any and all Jane Austen news—or has the trend gotten tired? Either way, I figured the following news would be of some interest to our readers who also love to write.

Blogger Laurel Ann Nattress of will edit a collection of J.A.-inspired short stories by the likes of Lauren Willig, Adriana Trigiani, Karen Joy Fowler, Laurie Viera Rigler, Elizabeth Aston, Pamela Aidan, Stephanie Barron, Syrie James, Alexandra Potter, Beth Patillo, Frank Delaney, Diane Meier and 10 other writers, according to Publishers Marketplace.

The interesting tidbit is that one of the stories in the collection could be written by you! will host a contest for inclusion in the collection, and the book will be published by Ballantine.

If our feature on Write That Book Already! had you inspired, maybe this contest would be a good way to flex those writing muscles. . .

Got any good story ideas?
