Stella Prize announces expanded ‘Girls Write Up’ program

The Stella Prize has announced the line-ups for its one-day ‘Girls Write Up’ festivals for students.

Events will be held in Canberra on 6 May, Melbourne on 15-16 June and Sydney on 22-23 June, with the dates for festivals in Brisbane and Wodonga still to be announced. As previously reported by Books+Publishing, the inaugural ‘Girls Write Up’ events were held in Sydney and Melbourne in 2016.

The ‘Girls Write Up’ program is for teens aged 12–18, and teaches ‘empowerment through writing and sharing stories; explores the relationship between language, gender and power; and examines the effects of unconscious bias on our sense of self’.
