The Ubud Writers and Readers Festival is offering enthusiastic supporters the chance to be on the ground level of Asia's most dynamic annual gathering focused on intellectual dialogue between readers and writes from around the world.

Started in 2004 and held on an annual basis, the Festival brings to Bali world-renowned writers, journalists, literary agents, artists and publishers from across the region in a dynamic meeting of minds. Promoting Bali as a cultural and artistic center, the Festival also aims to foster a love of literature among young Indonesians.

Tri Hita Karana is the theme adopted for the fifth Ubud Writers and Readers Festival to be held in Ubud, Bali October 14-19, 2008. This year's theme – as its name implies – focuses on the relationship between God, Humanity and Nature.

Invited international guests for this year's event include Indian author Vikram Seth, award-winning Nigerian writer Diran Adebayo, UK author Caryl Philips, Mexican writer Alberto Ruy-Sanchez, Australian novelist Helen Garner and the 2007 short-listed Man Booker Prize writers Indra Sinha and Lloyd Jones.
