Are you a real-life Dickensian character?

Recommended Posts


"A charity founded by Charles Dickens has launched a competition to find real modern-day characters who could have provided the basis for one of the author’s classic creations.

"Dickens helped to found the Journalists’ Charity in 1864.

"To mark the 150th anniversary of his death, the charity is asking for written portraits of a modern-day Dickensian character.

"The subject could be someone in public life, including a politician or and celebrity, or an NHS worker helping to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

"Entrants have a 300-word limit and are encouraged to take inspiration from Dickens’s prose to bring to life a contemporary figure who could rank alongside Betsey Trotwood, Miss Havisham or Bill Sykes."
