Griffith Review novella competition: deadline 31 March 2020

Deadline: 31 March
Website: https://www.griffithreview.com/griffith-review-70-generosities-of-spirit

Recent research suggests that the average person in 2009 demonstrated less empathy than in 1979. Can this really be the case? Does it indicate our reserves of kindness are evaporating? Can we detect a creeping desertification of human generosity? Or does the human capacity for joy continue to assert itself in moments of grace that can inspire and transform?

Griffith Review’s eighth novella competition seeks to celebrate generosities and kindnesses, the uplifting and memorable experiences that can illuminate lives. Entries are invited in the genres of both fiction and creative non-fiction, ranging between 15,000–25,000 words.
