About The Millennials Project

Millennials concept (1)

The Millennials Project is back to explore life through the eyes of this witty, much-maligned, existential-dreading generation.

Last semester, we discussed issues like waste and the bag ban, grief and anorexia.

This year, we want to keep talking about issues faced by Millennials, and we want to see more fiction.

We look forward to being surprised by your pitches and submissions, but, if you’re looking for inspiration, here are some things we’ve been thinking about:

  • The exposure economy
  • Disposable living
  • Underemployment
  • Overeducation
  • Avocados
  • Industry assassination
  • Changing internet communities
  • Failing social media
  • job dissatisfaction
  • Online activism
  • Participation trophies
  • Multi-generational households
  • Gig economy
  • The post-nuclear family
  • The sharing economy
  • Job insecurity
  • WebMD
  • Polyamory
  • Sharehouse culture
  • Fur babies
  • Internet linguistics
  • Third culture kids
  • Constant contactability
  • Memes
  • Disruption


If you remember when the internet entered our lives, or getting your first participation trophy, we would love to hear from you: what you find inspiring, interesting, troubling, frustrating, thrilling.

Your piece must be between 500-2000 words.

Grattan Street Press accepts both non-fiction and fiction submissions for consideration.
