2015 DATES ANNOUNCED!

We’re pleased to announce the dates for the 2015 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival.

Circle October 28 – November 1 on your calendars, as that is when we’ll be celebrating the theme 17,000 Islands of Imagination right here in Bali’s cultural heartland with a host of incredible writers, artists… and you!

The theme is also that chosen by the Frankfurt Book Fair (to be held mid-October) for this year’s Guest of Honour Nation, Indonesia. The Festival has elected to present a united front in order to best showcase the rich literature and arts of the country to the world.

We’ll reveal more shortly about our take on the theme, and the 2015 poster. For now, save the date!
