With the generous support of the Ian Potter Foundation, the Sydney Review of Books is offering three year-long fellowships to mid-career and established Australian literary critics in 2019.
Each fellowship recipient will be paid $12,000 over twelve months to write eight longform review essays about new works of Australian and international literature for publication on the Sydney Review of Books.
The JUNCTURE fellowship program is a rare opportunity for professional critics to extend their practice.
Applicants are invited to submit a cover letter (max 2 pages) outlining their interest in and suitability for the fellowship program. The cover letter should include information about the applicant’s experience as a literary critic, their area of specialisation, and the kinds of works they might review for the Sydney Review of Books. Each applicant will be required to submit links to three representative samples of published work.
Applications close: Friday 19 July 2019.
The program will commence in early August.
More information about the selection criteria and required commitment can be found on the Sydney Review of Books website.
