    I wrote a post for the Wheeler Centre blog, following up on one I wrote this time last year about International Women’s Day and gender balance in the literary pages – read the post here. Also took part in great conversations at Shearer’s Bookshop – blogged by Jane Gleeson-White here, and tweeted like mad by @GenresAttack – Customs House Library, and Katoomba – discussed here by panelist Tara Moss. These were all genuinely inspiring gatherings – thanks to all who attended, spoke, and supported the events. There will be more updates, photos and links up on the Stella Prize website soon.
