Jane Austen's Regency World promises to cater to everyone from Jane Austen scholars to viewers captivated by the TV adaptations of her work It will contain comment and criticism, news, views and media events, as well as features on people and places connected with the Austen family, fashion and costume, food and recipes, homes and interiors, and historic events of the period. Features m the launch issue included collecting antiquarian books, recycling of names in Jane Austen novels, and an interview with actor Benjamin Whitrow who played Mr Bennett in the TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Openings exist for freelance writers who can produce quality articles on subjects related to Jane Austen and the Regency period. Any angle from the scholarly to the downright whacky. It could be something historical about Nelson or Napoleon or an opinion piece on whether studying novels at school kills or kindles a love of the classics. The magazine is a collaboration between publisher Worldmags Ltd and the Jane Austen Centre, which recently came out top in a Visitor and Benchmarking Survey carried out by South West Tourism.
