Submissions open –
The Novella Project VII

Following the outstanding success of Griffith Review 62: All Being Equal – The Novella Project VI, submissions are now open for Griffith Review’s seventh annual novella competition!

Boasting a prize pool of $25,000 to be shared equally among winners, The Novella Project VII is one of the richest novella competitions in the world.

The winning entries will be selected by Maxine Benebe Clarke, Matthew Condon and Aviva Tuffield, and will feature in Griffith Review 66: The Novella Project VII, published in early November.

There is no theme for the 2019 competition, and both fiction and creative non-fiction works of 15,000–25,000 words will once again be eligible.

Need some inspiration? Griffith Review’s recent celebration of the novella form, Novella November, featured instructive and reflective notes on novellas from Michelle de Kretser, Helen Garner, Nick Earls and many more. You can read all of them here.

Now, let your imagination run wild. We look forward to reading your work!
