The Austen Project

Breathing life back into Jane: The Austen Project

I wanted to share with you a few lines about The Austen Project – something which you’ve most likely already heard of but which I think is too exciting to not talk about.

The Project was initiated sometime in 2011 and entails six authors re-imagining six of Jane Austen’s best-loved stories.

So far, Val McDermid has been confirmed as rewriting Northanger Abbey, whilst Joanna Trollope has signed up to bring Sense & Sensibility into the 21st century. The other four titles – and tellers – will be revealed in due course. Exciting, no?
