A new $30,000 literary prize for historical fiction

May 1 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm

With prize money of $30,000, the new ARA Historical Novel Prize gives Australian and New Zealand historical novelists the chance to be recognised in a class of their own, with the most significant prize purse for any genre-based prize in Australasia.

The ARA Historical Novel Prize has been made possible by the generosity of its principal partner, ARA Group, which has ensured the success of its last two biennial conferences with their continuing support.

They’re also delighted to involve regional Australia in our endeavour with the New England Writers’ Centre kindly administering the submission process.
