Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2008

Burgeoning writers, published writers and those who are just lovers of literature, get your gear together and head to Ubud in a weeks time for the 2008 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. Since its beginning I have only managed to attend one of these great festivals and believe me it is well worth the visit. The creator of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is Janet de Neefe. Who founded two restaurants (Casa Luna and Indus) in Ubud as well as the famous Casa Luna Cooking School. Janet has lived in Bali for more than 20 years. The theme of this year’s Festival is Tri Hita Karana – the Balinese concept of balancing Man, Nature, God.

The 2008 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is an annual celebration of international and Asian literature and recognised as being one of the most important artistic and cultural festivals in Indonesia. What I like about the festival is that is has so much to offer. There is a wide range of writing related workshops for adults such as travel writing, writing for the media, editing and publishing, memoir writing, short story writing and novel writing.

Date: 14-19 October.
