Happy Camp Day Iggles! August is always a bittersweet month. The  days seem to get a little bit shorter every day and we become consumed with holding on to those last few days of summer. The highlight of my August for the last few years has been the Austen in August celebrations across the web and around the world.

Letters were a huge part of many of Austen’s most popular works. From Darcy’s explanatory letter to Elizabeth to one of Austen’s final writings Lady Susan (a story told completely in letter format), pivotal events are set in motion and decided by a single missive. So Today I challenge you to share some of your summer highlights in true Austen style : With a letter!

You can use a variety of formats: A handwritten note to Austen or one of her characters sharing your summer adventures, A love letter to one of Jane’s swoon-worthy characters, Or you can create a poem, collage , or a craft to send to Jane wishing her a Happy Birthday! Share Your links in the comments section and be sure to log into the Rafflecopter. There will be three winners !
