We are so ridiculously and open-heartedly PROUD and thrilled for Grace Chan and her speculative-fiction novel, Every Version of You being longlisted in 2023 Stella Prize!
And we love what Executive Director of Stella, Jaclyn Booton, says of the entire longlist:
“The 2023 Stella Prize longlist is an exceptional demonstration of the vitality of Australian women’s writing. The twelve longlisted books are an invitation to readers, bringing them face to face with themes of art and caretaking, body, voice, and cultural legacy, mortality and survivorship, and challenges to gender norms. I’m delighted to congratulate the longlisted writers on their achievement and urge everyone to pick up copies of these outstanding titles at your local bookstore or library.”
We could not agree more, and wish everyone heartiest of congratulations!
Especially Grace Chan, and her publisher – Affirm Press!
‘The 2023 Stella Prize shortlist will be announced on Thursday 30 March, and the 2023 Stella Prize winner will be announced on Thursday 27 April.
The winner of the 2023 Stella Prize will receive $60,000 thanks to the generous support of the Wilson Foundation.’
