The Stella Prize invites you to join the 2017 Stella Sparks campaign and show your support for writing by Australian women.
This year, the Stella Prize is highlighting the the impact of nonfiction writing by women on Australian culture and society.
Join us for a gala celebration hosted by Julia Zemiro, and featuring 4 incredible women sharing true stories on the night – Nakkiah Lui, Fiona Wright, Charlotte Wood and Candy Royalle.
We want to hear about the incredible works of nonfiction by Australian women that have inspired and informed you – your nonfiction Stella Sparks.
Stella Spark donors receive free entry to the Stella Sparks Party and Stella Prize Longlist Announcement, a writer's diary and a collection of nonfiction writing showcasing Australian women writers.
‘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
