Australian Book Review seeks applications for the ABR Sidney Myer Fund Fellowship,
a major new program marking the magazine’s fiftieth birthday in 2011. This particular Fellowship – the second to be offered by ABR – is supported by the Sidney Myer Fund.
The ABR Fellowships are intended to reward outstanding Australian writers, to enhance ABR through the publication of major works of literary journalism, and to advance the magazine’s commitment to critical debate.
We are seeking a substantial article, either a profile of a major literary figure or a discursive essay with literary/cultural themes.
Any writer with a significant publication record (books, creative writing, essays or journalism) is eligible to apply. You have until 31 January 2011 to do so.
ABR gratefully acknowledges the generosity of the Sidney Myer Fund and of its many Patrons, who support the magazine through tax-deductible donations of $250 or more. These donations are vital for the magazine’s future.
