Stella is delighted to announce the 2018 Stella Prize longlist of powerful books by Australian women.
In a year when women’s voices are demanding to be heard, the 2018 Stella Prize 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 nonfiction of this year’s list. Many authors on the longlist explore the importance of narrative for both our understanding of the past and our imaginings of the future. 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.
The Stella Prize shortlist will be announced in March and the winner in April 2018
