Stella was noted for being compassionate and interested in social issues. Like her older female relatives, she supported womens suffrage. During World War I, she supported the troops by gardening and by helping poor women in Londons East End at The Charity Organisation Society. These efforts inspired Benson to write novels I Pose (1915) and This Is the End (1917). She took on a job at The University of California as a tutor, then as an editorial reader for The University Press. These experiences inspired her next work, The Poor Man (1922). Bensons writings kept coming, but her later works are not well known today.

Goodbye, Stranger was written in 1926, followed by The Man Who Missed the Bus in 1928 and finally Tobit Transplanted in 1930, which won the Femina Vie Heureuse Prize. These were followed by two collections of short stories, Hope Against Hope (1931) and Christmas Formula (1932). She was also the author of Twenty (1918) and Living Alone (1919).
