The Stella Prize is a major literary award celebrating Australian women's writing, worth $50,000 and open to both fiction and non-fiction. The prize is named after one of Australia's iconic female authors, Stella Maria 'Miles' Franklin, and was awarded for the first time in 2013.
The shortlist will be revealed in March and the overall winner will be announced on 21 April.
