Real Cool World


Real Cool World will explore Antarctica as a place and as a canvas for imagination. If stories about Antarctica illuminate much of the rest of the planet’s past and future, they also create a space to play out human ideas of exploration, investigation and fantasy.

Poetry submissions are open for Griffith Review 77: Real Cool World. Find out more and submit via Submittable by 13 May 2022.
