Griffith Review is designed to foster and inform public debate and to provide a bridge between the expertise of specialists and the curiosity of readers. We wish to give writers the space to explore issues at greater length, with more time for reflection than is possible under the relentless pressure of daily events. Our aim is to provide the opportunity for established and emerging writers, thinkers and artists to tease out complexity and contradiction and propose new ways of thinking and seeing. Check out our writers' guidelines for further information.


Future editions

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 our changing themes.


Griffith Review 78: A Matter of Taste **POETRY ONLY**

Food is more than a matter of taste. From the comfort of the kitchen to the theatre of the restaurant, the glamour of the TV studio to the gloss of the cookbook page, the ways we frame and consume stories about food shape our cultural histories as much as our personal identities.

Griffith Review 78 explores food as spectacle and status symbol, as fad and fantasy, as capital and cultural currency.

You can submit up to four individual poems, each no longer than two pages.
Submissions close: 11.59 pm AEST, 25 July 2022
Publication date: November 2022

Submissions will only be accepted via Griffith Review's Submittable page.
