If you are reading this page, chances are you have a deep and abiding love for Jane Austen and her works. Like many of our readers, you may also enjoy writing about Jane, be it research about her time period, her life, her novels, or reviews of her works (and those inspired by her works). We love hearing from you, and we love posting articles from Janeites around the globe.
If you have a question about a piece posted on our site, or would like to submit your own work for inclusion on this site, please contact Matthew Coniam by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our website is free and open to the public. The Jane Austen Centre does not offer financial return in exchange for articles. All pieces submitted to the site must be family friendly in nature. Articles submitted for review are not guaranteed to be posted, but we do include as many as we can.
When we reprint a piece, we rely on the integrity of the author regarding the work’s originality and accuracy. It is also up to the author to determine if the images they have included are copyright free and able to be reproduced under the creative commons, public domain or fair use doctrine:
…the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.
When preparing an article for publication, it is first laid out in a format compatible with our site. We also like to include a brief biography (a line or two will do) about the author. If you have images to include, please include them as separate attachments to the article. Those with blogs, shops and other types of businesses often like to include links to them, as well. The author is then able to proof the piece and make any changes they might like.
We look forward to hearing from you!
