The Erica Bell Foundation

Rewarding Excellence in Tasmanian Literature and Medical Research

The Erica Bell Foundation

The Erica Bell Foundation celebrates and honours the extraordinary life and work of Dr Erica Bell. Erica published over 100 academic research papers and five books during her 10 years at the University of Tasmania, as well as publishing two historical novels. Her first novel, The Voyage of the Shuckenoor, was launched at the 2008 Melbourne Writers Festival, while her second novel Enzam and the Just Prince was published just one week before her sudden passing in July 2014. Her third novel The Weather Tellers remains unfinished.

Erica is remembered by her family, friends and colleagues as a warrior of creative thought through her positive attitude, her all-encompassing love of life and her outstanding achievements.
