Sydney Review of Books publishes more non-fiction book reviews

February 11, 2021

One of Australia’s most respected and ambitious online literary journals, the Sydney Review of Books (SRB), will soon start publishing more reviews of Australian creative non-fiction writing. 

The SRB publishes critical, creative, ambitious, and engaging writing on contemporary literature and culture.

From March this year, with support from the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, the SRB will publish an additional review of a new Australian book each month.

Editor of SRB, Catriona Menzies-Pike, says: “There’s an extraordinary variety of new Australian non-fiction being published, and we’re delighted to be able to expand our coverage of these books. 

“This funding from the Copyright Agency will allow us to commission rich and detailed critical essays on new publications about contemporary Australia and our history, a timely and much-needed contribution to the public conversation.” 

SRB‘s priority is to publish more reviews on current affairs and history and to convey the vibrancy, diversity and distinctiveness of Australian life. This is an opportunity to engage with independent, vigorous and confident critical and engaged reviews of new Australian books.

Australia’s dynamic and resilient literary magazines and journals sector commissions reviews and new writing from a significant and diverse number of Australian writers. The Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund currently supports the following:

Australian Book Review
Griffith Review
Inside Story
Island Magazine
The Big Issue Annual Fiction issue
