We are thrilled to invite Stella’s community of writers, publishers, donors, booksellers, supporters, and friends to the announcement of the winner of the 2020 Stella Prize.

Tune in at thestellaprize.com.au from 8pm (AEST) on Tuesday 14 April 2020 as we celebrate the vibrancy and quality of Australian women’s writing and our rich literary community.

Our 2020 online announcement is hosted by Patricia Karvelas and features guest speaker, the Hon. Julia Gillard AC. We’ll also hear from Louise Swinn, chair of the Stella judging panel, all six shortlisted authors, and the winner herself.

Now in its eighth year, the Stella Prize awards one author with a $50,000 prize, thanks to the generous support of the Wilson Foundation. This buys a writer some measure of financial independence and thus time – that most undervalued yet necessary commodity for women – to focus on their writing.

Presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing & Ideas.
