Stella Peg Carruthers is a writer and mixed-media and textile artist from Aotearoa New Zealand. She is currently working on her first novel. A cross-genre coming of age tale, it explores the power of literature to change lives as well as the nature of family. She is just starting to re-immerse herself in a visual journalling practice which she hopes will lead to the development of more complete art works.
Stella works part time in an academic library and in community work as well as running her own freelance business as a writer and artist. She has had a number of poems published both in print and online and her work has been long listed for a number of national and international short story competitions. Her first published essay is due for release in an anthology in early 2021.
She resides in Wellington, the city she was born in. She is deeply interested in sustainable living practices and enjoys gardening, knitting, yoga and cooking in her spare time. She is also presenting workshops on eco life-styling at her local community education centre in 2020.
