2018 Stella Prize longlist announced

23 Feb 2018

The Stella Prize is a major literary award celebrating Australian women’s writing, as well as an organisation that champions cultural change.

In a year when women’s voices are demanding to be heard, this year's longlist showcases the power and diversity of writing by women in Australia. The determination required to create change, and the political necessity of telling our own stories, shines through in the fiction and non-fiction of this year’s list. The prominence of books by smaller independent publishers speaks to the vibrancy of Australian publishing, and the longlist as a whole is a testament to the potency of women’s writing in Australia today.

For more information about the works on the longlist go to the Stella Prize website, read the author bios, judges reports and more. You can also search the catalogue to find copies of the longlist nominees at your local branch or in our eLibrary.
