‘The Lifted Brow’ announces nonfiction prize winner; relaunches print magazine

Melbourne writer Oscar Schwartz has won the inaugural The Lifted Brow (TLB) Prize for Experimental Nonfiction for his piece ‘Humans Pretending to be Computers Pretending to be Human’.

Schwartz was selected from a shortlist of four for the award, which was judged local author Rebecca Giggs and US writers John D’Agata and Mallory Ortberg. As previously reported by Books+Publishing, the $1000 award sought to ‘unearth new, audacious, authentic and/or inauthentic voices’ from Australia and around the world.

The award’s announcement coincided with the relaunch of the TLB print magazine in Melbourne on 15 March. As previously reported by Books+Publishing, TLB went on a ‘print hiatus’ in September last year in order to redesign the magazine. The latest edition is also the first under new editors Ellena Savage, Stephanie Van Schilt and Gillian Terzis.
