Since 2016, the Stella Prize has invited the public to celebrate Australian women’s writing through Stella Sparks, a social media campaign and fundraising effort to support the work of the Stella Prize. Stay tuned for the 2018 Stella Sparks campaign!

Small donations are sparks that kindle and ignite the life force of Stella, and the community around us. With this in mind, we invite anyone who believes in gender equality in literature to become a Stella Spark.

Become a Stella Spark – by donating a minimum of $100 to the Stella Prize ($50 concession).
