The Hobart Writers Festival
TasWriters would like to thank everyone who took part in the Hobart Writers Festival this year!
The festival presenters, performers and volunteers were all amazing and we couldn’t have done it without you!
This year’s theme was: My Tasmanian Landscape. The judges were inaugural 2017 winner Adam Thompson, Jillian Mundy and Theresa Sainty.
In recognition of the deep history and culture of this island, TasWriters acknowledges the Mouheneenner People and the traditional owners and custodians of the land, and we pay our respect to the elders past, present and emerging.
