Grasstrees is a tranquil property nestled on the south-west coast of Victoria near the Great Otway National Park, in Wadawurrung Country.
Generously supported by the Trawalla Foundation, the Stella Grasstrees Writing Retreats were awarded to Stella Prize shortlisted authors between 2013 and 2019. The Stella Grasstrees Writing Retreat provided writers with the space to begin or progress a new work of Australian literature.
“Virginia Woolf’s words about women needing ‘a room of one’s own’ still ring true, and we trust that the residency will nurture these female writers’ creativity.”
