'At a time when long form journalism is under threat and the voices in our public debate are often off-puttingly condescending, hectoring and discordant, this is the elegant alternative.' -- Booktopia Buzz 'Of all the small magazines in this country, Griffith REVIEW is the one that's essential reading.' * Weekend Australian * `Griffith REVIEW is a wonderful journal. It's pretty much setting the agenda in Australia and fighting way above its weight.' * Phillip Adams, ABC Radio National * `Griffith REVIEW, under the editorship of Julianne Schultz, just keeps getting better and better.' * Kerryn Goldsworthy, Australian Book Review *
