2022 Stella Prize longlist announcement

22 March 2022

Earlier this year, the 2022 Stella Prize longlist was announced, and it consisted of 12 exceptional books by Australian writers, with a remarkable seven of the 12 books written by debut authors and five of the 12 by First Nations authors.

The selection includes novels, short fiction, memoir, social history, a book-length essay, a graphic novel, and – eligible for the first time in 2022 – poetry.

Now in its tenth year, the Stella Prize has become an indispensable part of Australia’s literary culture, celebrating the work of women and non-binary writers, driving book sales, sparking book clubs and influencing the conversation around gender equity.

View the impressive longlist and the writers behind each book on the Stella Prize website.
