Griffith Review is getting a digital reboot – and to celebrate, we’re looking for three regular online contributors in 2023. If you’ve got a strong voice and can bolster our record of offering fresh takes on big ideas, we want to hear from you.

As one of our chosen three, you’ll write us four non-fiction pieces (of 800–1,000 words each) across the year. These pieces will complement our print publishing program, but aren’t tethered to our quarterly edition themes – they can cover subjects as diverse, esoteric or topical as you like. What we want is criticism, commentary and analysis that offers new perspectives on the issues and challenges of our crisis-rich times.

If this sounds like a brief you were born to meet, this is what we’d like you to send us:

· a short (no more than 250 words) statement that tells us who you are and why you want to write for us

· four short pitches (no more than 150 words each) for potential 2023 pieces

· a short (no more than 500 words) writing sample that shows us what you can bring to our new digital platform.

We’ll pay each contributor $500 per article ($2,000 total for four pieces). We’ll notify our three successful contributors in January 2023 (and we’ll continue to commission single pieces or clusters of articles from a diversity of writers throughout the year).

Submissions close at 11.59PM AEST on 2 December 2022 and should be made via Submittable.
