Pico Iyer - the man described as one of the world's 100 visionaries who could change your life and the author of six works of fiction, two novels and countless other publications is coming to Bali for a series of literary dinners and travel-writing seminars June 6-9, sponsored by Garuda Indonesia and the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival.

A man whose home is his travelling bag, Pico Iyer describes himself as "living between cracks and outside fixed categories." His writings have transported readers to life within monasteries, rural Japan and to remote villages around the world. "Taking planes seems as natural to me as picking up the phone or going to school; I fold up my self and carry it around as if it were an overnight bag," explains Iyer. Clearly a traveler and not a tourist, Pico Iyer finds himself at home wherever his journeys bring him; from Easter Island to Paraguay, to Ethiopia and Cuba.

His first novel, Cuba and the Night, was optioned six times and then bought by Hollywood, and his book The Global Soul has inspired multi-media shows, conferences and websites around the world. In addition, he has written a film-script for Miramax, helped name an internationally known soft drink and been a Fellow (twice) of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Since 1980, he has published regular cover-stories on literature in The New York Review of Books, on globalism for Harper's and on films and music for Tricycle: The Buddhist Review

In 1995, Iyer was named by the Utne Reader, along with the likes of Noam Chomsky and Vaclav Havel, as one of 100 visionaries worldwide who "could change your life." He has a Master's degree in literature from Harvard, where he also taught literature and writing for two years.

Only Three Days in Bali

During the course of his three day appearance in Bali, Pico Iyer will be the guest of honor at several literary dinners and a seminar on travel writing where he will share his thoughts on how to make a piece of travel writing distinctive.

Pico will be available to answer questions with answers drawn from his quarter of a century in journalism, fiction writing, essays and travel-writing.

June 7 & 8, 2007 – Travel Writing Seminars with Pico Iyer

In two separate writing seminars Pico Iyer will discuss the art and craft of writing. What should you do when writing about somewhere that everyone already knows about? How do you give your piece another dimension that makes it interesting even to people who don't like to travel, and how do you keep pushing the boundaries of travel and travel-writing?

Pico will be available to answer any questions participants might have on any aspect of travel or writing—what to say about Bali, or how to address the Taj Mahal, or what one might want to write about a Kentucky Fried Chicken parlor in Denpasar.

• Thursday, June 7, 2007 - Amandari Resort in Ubud from 9:30-11:30 a.m..

• Friday, June 8, 2007 - Canggu Club in Canggu from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Cost of each seminar is Rp. 250,000 (approximately US$27.20) per person and includes morning tea.
