May 13 2016 The Novella Project IV Competition
Novellas are the ideal fiction for our times: long enough to engage yet short enough to hold readers' attention; the ideal length to enable authors to experiment. Griffith Review, with the active support of CAL's Cultural Fund, has been at the forefront of reviving novellas in Australia. Today we launch our fourth novella competition, wittily named The Novella Project IV Competition. Earlier this year, we put the call out for our third volume of novellas, Tall Tales Short – The Novella Project III, and were overwhelmed by interest. The web page was visited more than 13,650 times, and we received a whopping 271 entries. Our expert judges – Brian Johns, Jacqueline Blanchard and Cate Kennedy – read the novellas blind and were astounded by the diversity and quality. It was difficult, but five winning novellas were finally chosen, and Tall Tales Short was published last week. Featuring novellas by Nick Earls, Madeleine Watts, Helen Gildfind, Catherine McKinnon and Tony Davis, Tall Tales Short is a rich and varied collection that showcases the diversity of the novella form.
