Rebecca Smith has penned an Austen-lover’s dream with her book The Jane Austen Writer’s Club: Inspiration and Advice from the World’s Best-Loved Novelist. True to its name, this book provides encouragement and insights gleaned from the works and letters of Jane Austen, compiled by her five times great-grandniece and teacher of creative writing. From planning a novel to joints of mutton, this volume of techniques, tips, and encouragements is as close as Austen-ites can get to mentorship by Austen herself. Not only is the advice contained within still relevant, but it is highly readable and has a wide array of writing exercises and anecdotes, making this a fantastic resource for writers, Austen fans or not. It’s almost like having a class on writing, as Austen offered much advice to her relatives and friends about writing, and The Jane Austen Writer’s Club gleans the best of this information. This writing companion is encouragement, practice, and advice all rolled into one, and it is entertaining reading as well. Joining the Jane Austen Writer’s Club is as easy as picking up this book and digging in, cup of tea completely optional.
