About ABR Fellowships


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.

Each ABR Fellowship is worth $5000. Funded by ABR’s generous Patrons and by philanthropic foundations, the Fellowship program is intended to reward outstanding Australian writers and to advance the magazine’s commitment to critical debate and literary values. ABR will offer two or three such Fellowships each year. Read about past ABR Fellowships.

The Fellowship program offers the successful applicant a chance to produce an extended collaborative non-fiction essay in consultation with ABR. Unlike the Calibre Prize the Fellowship program is not for finished essays or articles. To gain a better sense of the magazine’s style and content, applicants may wish to subscribe to the print edition, or to ABR Online. We are looking for a sophisticated understanding of what the magazine represents.

ABR again thanks all of its Patrons, who support the magazine through tax-deductible donations of $250 or more. These donations are vital for the magazine’s future.

‘The ABR Patrons’ Fellowship is a laudable initiative, and I am grateful and fortunate to have been the inaugural fellow.’

The most endearing, and the best, journal of words and ideas. The original stories and poetry are a delight to welcome each month. Supporters can be proud of their judgement.
