Welcome to BAD 2023, the place for every crime story. We’re bigger, badder and better than ever with new offerings, as well as your favourite fiction, true crime and social justice events, to entertain, inform and provoke from 1-5 November, all day and into the evenings.
We bring you an opening night crime edition of Literary Death Match on Wednesday November 1. Four writers address our Festival theme A place for every crime story on Wednesday 2. Find the murderer in the Whodunnit evening on Saturday November 4 and don’t miss your favourite crime trivia night on Friday 3 and the announcement of three Danger Awards for fiction, true crime and for the first time the People’s Choice award.
Aspiring crime writers have a choice of four workshops and can pitch to publishers and agents for the first time. Continue to walk the talk in Surry Hills and Hyde Park. There really is something for every crime lover.
