Stella Prize 2013

The Stella Prize is a major new literary award for Australian women’s writing.

The longlist for the inaugural Stella Prize was announced today. Naturally, I’m cheering for Carrie Tiffany, given she’s an ex-work colleague and a lovely guest at my book group. Have I mentioned that she’s also written an amazing book? Little Hazel is one of my favourite characters. Ever.

Of course, the longlist provides lots of reading for this year’s Australian Women Writers Reading Challenge (not that I have a shortage of books). Next on my AWW list is Amy Espeseth’s Sufficient Grace. Not sure how many of the books listed I’ll get through before the Prize is announced in April, but I’ll do my darndest.
