Hachette Australia is thrilled to congratulate Claire G. Coleman on being longlisted for The Stella Prize 2018 for her debut novel, TERRA NULLIUS.

In the near future Australia is about to experience colonisation once more. What have we learned from our past? A daring debut novel from the winner of the 2016 black&write! writing fellowship.

The Stella Prize is a major literary award celebrating Australian women’s writing, and an organisation that champions cultural change. The prize is named after one of Australia’s iconic female authors, Stella Maria Sarah ‘Miles’ Franklin, and is open to entries of both nonfiction and fiction books by Australian women.

The Stella Prize shortlist will be announced in March 2018, and the winner announced in April 2018.

  • Terra Nullius - Claire G. Coleman

    This is not Australia as we know it. This is not the Australia of our history. This TERRA NULLIUS is something new, but all too familiar. This is an incredible debut from a striking new Australian Aboriginal voice.
