  Jane Austen course at King's College, London - 2 Feb 2012

(Course start date 02-07-2012 - Course duration 3 weeks)

Message to our president. Dear Mr Dudgeon,

I am writing to you because I am running a three week summer course at King's College London, exploring Austen's England, as well as her place in the literary pantheon. It is open to all who wish to study Austen in an academic environment at a Russell Group university. I would be extremely grateful if you could publish this link on your website, as I would love to have your members join my course. The link below should take you to the full course prospectus.

I look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely,


Greetings from New Zealand. 21 Jan 2012

Great to see there are active Jane Austen societies in South America! Just thought I'd send you the link to the music video for my new song "Jane Austen":

The song takes us on a journey from the 2000s back to the 1800s, and I would love to share this with as many Jane Austen fans as possible who will hopefully enjoy the symbolism and humour of the song. Please feel free to pass this link on in whatever manner you wish. The song is available on iTunes. I look forward to any response, and wish you well for the rest of 2012.
