The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age are inviting applications from emerging book critics to join their respected team of reviewers for a six-month appointment.
This is part of a grant from the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund and the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas, enabling the mastheads to expand the depth and range of arts criticism and reviews.
The two successful critics will be commissioned to write reviews of new Australian books (both fiction and non-fiction), to be published in print as well as online at smh.com.au, theage.com.au, watoday.com.au and brisbanetimes.com.au
This is an opportunity for talented writers with experience in reviewing a broad array of books, who can bring fresh and diverse voices to our reviewing ranks. The two writers will work on a freelance basis, filing fortnightly, starting in August.
Applicants should submit a short resume and links to three recent published pieces of critical writing about books and literature to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Thursday July 9.
