The Stella starts to even the score.” – Catherine Andrews.  The Stella Prize: http://thestellaprize.com.au

The Stella Prize - the longlist of 12 books has been announced in the Inaugural Stella Prize - open to published Australian female novelists. Can't wait to read them.

“When the Stella Prize was announced in 2013, I welcomed it enthusiastically, particularly as a source of reliable recommendations for the best of our newer and less familiar women writers. Having read half of the thirty-six longlisted Stella Prize books over its first three years, I am yet to be disappointed. An added bonus has been the introduction to the best of Australia’s nonfiction writing.” – Graham Anderson.   The Stella Prize: http://thestellaprize.com.au

“My first writing prize was like a strong breeze at my back, drowning out the whispers of self-doubt and, no less importantly, buying me time to try something that might or might not work out.
