2020 – A Year of Transformations

In 2020, in a world where incessant change has become the new normal, Griffith Review focuses on the phenomenon of transformation, from the processes that are reshaping the institutional and the geopolitical to the repercussions felt at the most personal and intimate of levels. Interrogating metamorphosis, conversion and adaptation, our editions set out to explore the differing experiences of a world in flux, a world where everything is in play.

Four times a year, Griffith Review provides a new perspective on some of the most fascinating issues of the day, featuring different voices every time. We seek submissions of essays and creative non-fiction, reportage, fiction, poetry, memoir and picture stories that address this year of change.
