Gorman, Sean, et al.: Griffith Review: Indigenous writing

‘Indigenous writing’, Griffith Review

We apologise for not discovering this portal earlier. It links (at the time of posting, September 2015) to 54 articles from Griffith Review on Indigenous affairs and another 33 articles from the Review by Indigenous writers. Griffith Review introduces the portal thus:

One of the things that makes Australia truly unique is being home to the oldest continuous civilisation. What this really means is undervalued and little understood in this country. It is part of the reason Griffith Review has featured Indigenous writing in every edition. 

An integral part of our approach is to illuminate the richness and complexity of Indigenous life, and to create a place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers can write frankly, fully and with support. We also support writing about Indigenous matters of politics, culture, identity and more by authors with expertise. 

This is about important and beautiful writing. Some pieces advance an agenda, others tell stories – but they all provide the writers with an opportunity to develop their skills, help make sense of the world, and connect with readers.

Some of the writers featured are Kim Scott, Chris Sarra, Anita Heiss, Noel Pearson, Marcia Langton, Melissa Lucashenko, Tim Rowse, Sarah Burnside, Kieran Finnane, Fiona Stanley, Jeff McMullen, Robyn Davidson, Mark McKenna, Rolf de Heer, Louis Nowra and Geoff Page.
