FN – Griffith Review Seeking Submissions on: Status Anxiety

April 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Status Anxiety

Like the answer to a riddle, status is all around us, but it can’t always be seen or heard. The silent switchboard behind our professional and personal interactions, status dictates our place on the guest list, in the room, at the table; through its connections to class, race and gender, it affords some of us power and wealth and others empty promises. But why does status so often go unnoticed? How does it influence everything from social inequality to personal relationships? And what changing forces have come to bear on the high or low status we’ve ascribed ourselves and others over the centuries?

This edition of Griffith Review grapples with the fallout of our status anxiety and explores what happens when we don’t measure up.

We’re looking for non-fiction and fiction that responds to the theme. We want pieces that are no longer than 4,000 words (they can, of course, be much shorter than this).

Attention poets – We’ll be opening a separate poetry call-out on 22 April – keep an eye on our social media and newsletter for more details soon.

Submissions open: Monday 4 March 2024

Submissions close: 11.59 AEST on Sunday 14 April 2024

Publication date: August 2024

We’ll let you know the outcome of your submission within eight weeks of the closing date.
