Stella encourages booklovers to support their local bookstore in this uncertain time.
Here are exemplary storytellers new and established working across fiction, investigative journalism, memoir and short story – six powerful books by women that bring to light diverse experiences of illness, family life, friendship, domestic abuse, and ultimately the human condition.
“These authors are craftspeople serious about their intention and dedicated to the art.”
Tickets are now on sale for the 2020 Stella Prize Longlist Party!

“The winning book elegantly tramples all over the Stella requirements: it is excellent, engaging and original in spades.”
“This prize rewards women who write truth – historical, political, and the truth of the heart and the soul: the truth of individuals, of each of us, and the truth of the world we live in.”
It’s been a big year here at Stella. This year, we’ve worked with over 600 teens in four states across Australia through Girls Write Up in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Wodonga.
