The Sydney Review of Books invites applications for the 2022 CA-SRB Emerging Critics Fellowships.

Each Fellow will receive a stipend of $3000 to write three 2000-word essays on new Australian books over an eight-month period for publication in the Sydney Review of Books. Fellows will work closely with Sydney Review of Books editorial staff and receive mentoring and editorial support as they write their essays.

At least one fellowship will be awarded to a First Nations writer and another to a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) writer. Fellowships will also reflect regional diversity and be allocated to critics from a minimum of three states and territories.

We invite applicants to join SRB editor Catriona Menzies-Pike for a Zoom Q&A on the SRB-CA Emerging Critics Fellowship program on Friday 27 May at 1pm. Find out more and register here.

Complete guidelines are here. Please email editor@sydneyreviewofbooks.com with any further queries.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
