Tasmania’s International Crime and Mystery Festival is running this November

Terror Australis Readers and Writers Festival (TARWF) has announced Tasmania’s first international crime and mystery literary festival, CSI: TASMANIA, which will run online from 27 – 28 November.

The two-day program has a line-up of over 35 writers of crime and mystery and includes notable authors, such as David Heska Wanbli Weiden, Ann Cleeves, Val McDermid, Liz Nugent, Garry Disher, Naomi Hirahara, Abir Mukherjee, Vanda Symon, J P Pomare, Candice Fox and Anit Heiss.

The two-day digital festival will offer in-depth interviews and panel discussions with authors, intimate book clubs and writing masterclasses.

"During our online digital weekend we'll share the love of Tasmanian, Australian and international crime and mystery fiction with an audience tuning in from around the world," the Festivals Director, Dr L J M Owen said.

Tasmania has an adult population that is just 50% functionally literate, therefore this project seeks to encourage the development of its literary sector, facilitate professional development opportunities, and increase community engagement in literature.

"It's not just for readers of crime and mystery … Anyone with an interest in books, reading, writing or the publishing industry will find something to suit them," Dr Owen said.

You can now purchase Earlybird Digital Weekend Passes to CSI: TASMANIA with tickets priced at $90.

See their website for more information on the festival and for tickets.
