Tasmanian author Heather Rose has won the Stella Prize.

Her novel 'The Museum of Modern Love' triumphed over five other books shortlisted for the $50,000 prize, with judges declaring it "an unusual and remarkable achievement".

Ms Rose told News Corp it's her first award win that comes with prizemoney.

"To win the Stella is amazing! I am surprised, delighted and deeply appreciative of the increased awareness this will bring to my novel. It’s something of a miracle when, after many years of work, a book with its own special life beyond the clandestine world of the author’s mind wins a major literary prize."

The Stella Prize is awarded annually for the best work of literature, fiction or non-fiction, published by an Australian woman.

'The Museum of Modern Love' is also on the longlist for the Australian Literary Society Medal.
