Murder she wrote
A new Tasmanian writers’ festival inspired by Agatha Christie will draw some well-known literary names to the Huon Valley. Crime writer, Tara Moss, and Ned Kelly Award winner, Sulari Gentill, will headline the Terror Australis Reader and Writers Festival, at Cygnet. The festival, which has also scheduled some Hobart events, will feature masterclasses, workshops, and promises ‘incisive literary discussions’. Aspiring writers can also pick up valuable insights on ‘how to hook a publisher’. The biennial festival is a fundraiser that supports literacy programs in regional Tasmania. The inaugural Terror Australis event will run from March 3 – 5, and will kick off with a literary fundraiser afternoon tea at Hadleys Orient Hotel in Hobart.
