Ubud literary roots grow deeper!
Already renowned as the annual venue of the Ubudís Writers and Readers Festival, Bali's hillside artists' Bohemia will launch another celebration of the spoken and written word with its first Saraswati Poetry Slam on Thursday, May 4, 2006.
"To Be or to Wannabe. . . "
In what organizers hope will become a monthly event, the Saraswati Poetry Slam will focus on original works from aspiring and established poets, of all nationalities and linguistic persuasion.
Set to run from 7:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at the Indus Restaurant, the first open-mike poetry night will be hosted by the famous Australian Performance Diva - Jan Cornall, who has promised an evening of hilarious and entertaining prose.
Open to All Ė Anyone Can Win!
Judges will be drawn at random from the audience which means almost anyone can win the prizes comprised of books by authors scheduled to appear at this years' Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, September 28- October 3, 2006.
