The Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship was established in 2011 to encourage Australian authors to attain a high standard of biography writing and to commemorate the life, ideas and writing of Hazel Rowley, who died in 2011.
Foreign Soil author Maxine Beneba Clarke won the 2014 Fellowship for her memoir The Hate Race, to be published later this year.
The winner of the fellowship, worth $10,000, will be announced at an event at Adelaide Writers’ Week on 4 March.
