Terror Australis: Readers and Writers Festival

Tassie Vice| International Crime and Mystery Literary Festival

This year, we’re thrilled to welcome Ann Cleeves to the Huon Valley as our 2023 International Writer in Residence.

For crime and mystery readers, we’re offering a four-day in-person festival in the stunning surrounds of the Kermandie, an Art Deco hotel on the banks of the Huon River.

Join Ann Cleeves and our New Zealand Guest of Honour, Vanda Symon, our Australian Guest of Honour, Garry Disher, and our Tasmanian Guest of Honour, David Owen for TAF2023 | TASSIE VICE.

With a literary high tea, a murder mystery dinner and two-day panel program exploring Australian and international crime and mystery fiction since the 80s, it’s going to be a criminally-good time.

The 2023 TARWF festival is offered with the support of RANT Arts and Regional Arts Australia.
