Current Fellowships

2017 ABR Gender Fellowship

Australian Book Review is pleased to reopen the ABR Gender Fellowship following the non-awarding of the Fellowship in the first round. We seek proposals for a substantial article on any aspect of gender in Australian literature (any genre). We have broadened the criteria and we welcome proposals from writers, commentators, and specialists with diverse interests and expertise.

The ABR Gender Fellowship is worth $7,500.
Applications close 1 May 2017.
