EEEEEEEEEE!! I MADE THE SHORTLIST, GUYS!!! I’m in pretty amazing company, though – glad I don’t have to choose who wins.
The inaugural Thiel Grant for Online Writing received over 170 applications covering the breadth of Australian writing for the internet. There was a remarkable diversity of topics and forms pitched by writers from a range of genders and cultural backgrounds. The judges were pleased that so many applications had a broadly political focus, and that most of the proposed concepts were highly suited to being sustained over fifty posts without sacrificing ambition.
After a difficult but delightful afternoon, I and my fellow judges are thrilled to be able to announce the shortlist for the Thiel Grant. The winner will be chosen from these eight proposals and announced here next week, on Wednesday 18th March.
Thanks to all who took the time to prepare an application, and congratulations to these eight outstanding online writers.
