Today, Peter Rose, Editor of Australian Book Review, announced details of the Australian Book Review Dahl Trust Fellowship, a new association for the magazine. The Fellowship will form the cornerstone of ABR’s first Environment issue, to be published in October 2014.
ABR seeks proposals for a cogent piece of journalism on any aspect of eucalypts. Any Australian writer with a significant publication record (books, creative writing, essays, or journalism) is eligible to apply. The Fellow’s article will appear in the print magazine and ABR Online.
This Fellowship is
generously supported by Bjarne K. Dahl Trust. Peter Rose commented: ‘ABR is grateful to the
Trust for this far-sighted support for
Australian writers. It represents an extension of our current partnerships and our
editorial range, which is a great thing for the magazine.’
The ABR Writers’ 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.
Eligibility and entry guidelinesFull details about how to apply and eligibility can be found on the ABR website.
Closing dateThe deadline for applications is 31 March 2014. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposals with the Editor before submitting them.
