Short biography
Miles Franklin's autobiographical first novel, "My Brilliant Career," written when she was 16, was hailed as the first uniquely Australian novel when it was published in 1901. She continued writing while doing hospital and social work in the US, UK and Serbia and working for women's suffrage. In her will, she endowed the Miles Franklin Literary Award, an annual literary prize given for "the best Australian published novel or play portraying Australian life in any of its phases."
