Congratulations to all the writers who made it onto the longlist for this year's Stella Prize.

Each year the Stella Prize is committed to recognising the best books by Australian women, both fiction and non-fiction.

Executive Director of the Stella Prize, Jaclyn Booton, says of this year's longlist:

“The 2020 Stella Prize Longlist is, as always, a testament to the quality and diversity of women’s writing in Australia. These remarkable works — both fiction and non-fiction, from Australian authors at all stages of their careers, and backed by our vibrant publishing sector — demonstrate how essential the voices and perspectives of women are. It’s all here: family, gender, politics, history, place, language, culture, and community – making the longlist as a whole both deeply local, and ambitiously global.”

A special shout out to Favel Parrett for her book There Was Still Love. Favel was a popular guest writer at our 2016 Festival!
