Melissa Lucashenko awarded $80,000 fellowship

Congratulations to Griffith Review contributor Melissa Lucashenko, who this week was awarded the Copyright Agency Author Fellowship. This year, CAL doubled the value of its fellowship for mid-to-late career authors to $80,000. The money will help Melissa finish a contemporary novel about ‘outlaws and Aboriginal hillbillies’, set in a poor NSW country town called Durrongo.
