More than 150 entries were received for the 2015 Stella Prize, and are currently being read and debated by our esteemed and committed judges.
The $50,000 prize will be presented for the best work of literature, fiction or non-fiction, published in 2014 by an Australian woman.
We look forward to announcing the 2015 Stella Prize longlist in February, the shortlist in March, and the winner in April 2015.
‘I am living proof that a women-only prize can be career changing … Yes, a prize for women’s writing wouldn’t be necessary in an ideal world, but that isn’t the world we live in.’ – Kate Grenville
‘I hope that the Stella Prize, with its graceful flexibility about genre, will encourage women writers to work
in the forms they feel truly at home in, instead of having to squeeze themselves into the old
traditional corsets.’ – Helen Garner
