Join us for our Crime Series!

 

 
Deeply atmospheric and altogether creepy? Meet the writers of crime and mystery.

There's nothing like crime fiction and its ability to take you to dark places. Thrillers have a way of capturing you and keeping you in their grasps until the very last page.

Crime fiction shows us the darkest side of humanity; meet the authors who call this area of fiction their playground at this year's Canberra Writers Festival. Meet the characters who ensnare them, and the worlds that they can not escape from.

Pick up your tickets to these in conversation sessions today.
