‘ABR’ reopens gender fellowship with expanded guidelines

The Australian Book Review (ABR) has reopened its $7500 gender fellowship with broader criteria, following its decision not to award the inaugural fellowship.

The revised fellowship calls for proposals for ‘a substantial article on any aspect of gender’ in any genre of Australian literature.

The original fellowship focussed on gender in contemporary Australian creative writing in all its forms, with the original guidelines asking: ‘What forms do the representations of women and men, and of gender and gender relations take in contemporary literature?’

The successful recipient will produce a nonfiction article of 6000-8000 words, with the article to appear in print and online editions of ABR.
