The Novella Project VIII judges announced

Griffith Review is thrilled to announce the industry judges for The Novella Project VIII.

In partnership with Ashley Hay and the Griffith Review editorial team, the winners of this year’s novella competition will be selected by award-winning writers Mirandi Riwoe, Angela Meyer and Holden Sheppard.

Boasting a prize pool of $25,000 to be shared equally among winners, all winning entries will feature in Griffith Review 70: Generosities of Spirit – The Novella Project VIII.

Griffith Review’s eighth novella competition seeks to celebrate generosities and kindnesses, the uplifting and memorable experiences that can illuminate lives. We’re seeking despatches from the frontlines of generosity – stories that mine the ongoing transformative power of the positive in the social spaces where we live, work and play.

Entries are invited in the genres of both fiction and creative non-fiction, ranging between 15,000–25,000 words.
