We need your support – help Griffith Review continue to thrive and support Australian writers

'With your help we can continue to provide opportunities for writers, to help them produce the best possible work, and to provide readers with rich and engaging writing.'
– Julianne Schultz, Founding Editor.

Please help us support Australian writing, culture and ideas. Every gift makes a difference and all donations over $2 are tax deductible. Donate online using Griffith University's quick, easy and secure Online Giving Form, and selecting 'Griffith Review' from the destinations dropdown menu. (All data is encrypted to ensure your privacy.) You can also download a donation form to print and mail back to us.

This year, your tax-deductible donation will be matched by funds as part of a partnership between Griffith Review and the State Library of Queensland. This doubles the power of your donation. We aim to fund six Griffith Review Fellowships and eight Griffith Review Varuna Fellowships in 2017/18.

Our contributors are at the very core of what we do. In fourteen years, Griffith Review has published over 1,200 writers both in print and online - a mix of emerging voices, well-known authors and trusted commentators. In the current environment, our donors are essential for us to continue commissioning writers to explore their passions, and illuminate important public issues. Writers are not well paid in this country, but their work is essential to making sense of our increasingly complex world, so we try to support them as best we can.

We need your help if we are to continue to produce work of the highest quality and support Australian writers. Your contribution is critical.

This year, your support will help us:

  • provide funds for six Griffith Review Fellowships of up to $5,000 each annually to support writers in the creation of a significant piece of work with a view to publication.
  • provide funding for our Griffith Review Varuna Fellowships, which offer writers a career-changing opportunity to spend a week at the acclaimed Varuna Writers' House.

Griffith Review makes an exceptional impact on the national conversation and plays a vital role in identifying and developing new literary talent, thanks in part to the loyalty and generosity of thousands of subscribers and donors.

Please contact us if you would like to receive more information about making a charitable donation.


Griffith Review thanks its existing patrons and donors, whose generosity has contributed towards expanding Griffith Review’s impact and visibility.
