Griffith REVIEW may award up to three Fellowships annually to writers' from their Contributers' Circle. Griffith REVIEW editors award this prize to writers' whose submitted proposals are original and potentially influential.
Entries will be judged by Griffith REVIEW staff based on: creative strength of the proposal including clear goals; originality of the work; evidence of capacity to advance the project towards publication.
Selected applicants will be notified on Friday 13 February.
The Griffith REVIEW Contributers' Circle Award includes a week’s residency at Varuna, the Writers’ House in Katoomba, the Blue Mountains. The residency must be undertaken within twelve months from the date of notification.
This Award replaces the Griffith REVIEW Emerging Writers' Award (GREW). Griffith REVIEW, Text Publishing and Varuna supported this award in 2010 and 2011.
In 2011 the GREW fiction award went to both Romy Ash and Rachel S Morgan. The winners of the non-fiction award were Meera Atkinson and Nicolas Low.
In 2010 the GREW fiction award went to both Jeremy Chambers and Anna Krien. The winner of the non-fiction award was Cameron Muir.
