Now in its 9th year, the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival returns to Bali October 3-7, 2012, again bringing together leading Indonesian and international literati in the cool foothills of Bali.

The theme for the 2012 gathering is “Bumi Manusia” or “This Earth of Mankind.” Drawn from the title of an epic novel by legendary Indonesian writer Pramoedya Ananta Toer, the adoption of the current theme marks the growing participation of Indonesian writer and the views they bring from every corner of the archipelago

Purnami, Community Development Manager for the Festival, says: “The increased participation of Indonesian writers enriches the festival through their local wisdom and perspectives from different parts of Indonesia. This year we present writers from across the Indonesian archipelago to share their stories with you.”

Among the Indonesian writers to grace the festival are Riri Riza, Happy Salma, Mira Lesmana, Todung Mulya Lubis, Rio Helmi, Ketut Yuliarsa, Butet Manutung and Iswadi Pratama.

Joining this star-studded cast of writers will be a compelling collection of international writers: Pulitzer Prize winner Jeffrey Eugenides, John Pilger, Anna Funder, Krys Lee, Kjersti Skomsvold, Kader Abdolah, and Alice Pung.

Memorable social gathers and special events will again punctuate the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, including a lunch with Dr. Jose Ramos-Horta and an afternoon chat session with Nick Cave.

Special seminars on memoirs, poetry, fantasy, fiction, screen and travel writing are also planned.

There will also be theatrical performance, street parties, poetry nights and street theatre.
