One of the things that makes Australia truly unique is being home to the oldest continuous civilisation. What this really means is undervalued and little understood in this country. It is part of the reason Griffith Review has featured Indigenous writing in every edition.
An integral part of our approach is to illuminate the richness and complexity of Indigenous life, and to create a place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers can write frankly, fully and with support. We also support writing about Indigenous matters of politics, culture, identity and more by authors with expertise.
This is about important and beautiful writing. Some pieces advance an agenda, others tell stories – but they all provide the writers with an opportunity to develop their skills, help make sense of the world, and connect with readers.
