Griffith Review: Millennial Edition
What are millennials up against, and what do they bring to their challenges?
In Griffith Review’s Millennial Edition, guest editor Jerath Head has invited young writers to lend their sophisticated critiques to the culture they’ve grown into. They include Briohny Doyle, whose story addresses wistful dreams of real estate ownership despite her scant prospects; Yassmin Abdel-Magied, who writes of the contrast between her activism and that of her parents; and Timmah Ball, whose piece deals with racism, ‘corporate feminism’ and the inspiration of Indigenous women who’ve come before her.
In their essays, each writer deals with the question of how millennials can find their place in a time of massive change, and a fraught, difficult world. In this episode, they join us for a chat about writing and coming of age in the 21st Century.
