Tri Hita Karana is the theme adopted for the Fifth International Ubud Writers & Readers Festival.

Tri Hita Karana is the Balinese-Hindu precept that safeguards the balance between Man and God, Man and Nature and Man and Man. Invited guests at the 200 event include award-winning UK author Caryl Phillips, Mexican writer Alberto Ruy-Sanchez, Helen Garner of Monkey Grip fame, Hari Kunzru and Man Booker prize short-listed writers: Indra Sinha, Mohsin Hamid and Lloyd Jones.

The collision of cultures will be one of the underlying themes at the 2008 Festival with established writers and emerging writers confronting the issues of 'Us and Them.' Discussions on the environment, world religions, languages and lifestyles will be delved into together with the subject of migration and its impact on communities. Hot debates addressing crime and punishment in Asia, and more specifically drugs, civil rights and moral dilemmas, will also take centre-stage. With women's rights and education in mind, Asia's rural communities who are on the periphery of social development and will be brought to the fore by leading literary lights.

It will be a dialogue like no other at Ubud, which lies on the fertile crossroads of two rivers, two oceans and two continents - Asia and Australia. In the 1930s, it was the exotic retreat of the rich and famous and has now re-invented itself as an international meeting place for writers, poets and artists from all parts of the world. It has become the stage where voices from China, India, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia and more are heard. In 2008, the Festival will strengthen this partnership and engage writers from beyond the region into the heart of Africa and South America.

Satisfy your hedonist passions by lavishing in the lush surroundings of some of Ubud's most elegant hotels and gracious homes with literary lunches, dinners and other culinary surprises. Enjoy workshops that teach the craft of writing, in between book launches, performances, exhibitions, cocktail parties and celebrations into the early hours of the morning. And if that is not enough, the 2008 Festival will take to the streets, literally, with International street performers matching their wits against Ubud's youth in a carnival of skill and artistry.

The established will meet the new.

The East will cross paths with the West.

It will be a literary celebration like no other.
