We are thrilled to share that Diving Into Glass by Caro Llewellyn and The Yield by Tara June Winch have been shortlisted for the 2020 Stella Prize. 

The $50,000 prize is presented to the best work of fiction or nonfiction by an Australian woman published in the previous calendar year. 

Chair of judges and Stella Prize co-founder Louise Swinn said, ‘The six books on this year’s shortlist are all outward-looking, and they tell stories – of illness, family life, friendship, domestic abuse, and more – in remarkable ways'. 

You can see other shortlisted titles on the Stella Prize website. The winner of the prize will be announced on 8 April.

Congratulations to Tara and Caro for this wonderful achievement.
