Ubud Writers and Readers Festival – 24th – 28th October 2018


Small Towns, Big Imagination

25th October: 2:30 – 3:30

Taman Baca. Festival Hub, Jl. Raya Sanggingan

Is there something universal about small towns and rural life? A lack of anonymity, a close community? Does it allow writers to go places that cities don’t? We’ve gathered writers from Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Portugal to discuss the insights and inspiration that come from writing beyond city limits. With Rosemarie Milsom, Jose Luis Peixoto, Joshua Pomare, Jessie Cole and Darmawati Majid.

The Big Read: Journeys

26th October: 1.00 – 2.15

Taman Baca. Festival Hub, Jl. Raya Sanggingan

It’s one of life’s pleasures: having someone read to you. Let your imagination wander with some of UWRF’s finest storytellers as they share tales of adventure, stories of discovery and journeys of the heart. Grab a tasty bite from our food stalls, put your feet up, and let our scribes take care of the rest. With Agustinus Wibowo, Will Buckingham, Jose Luis Peixoto, Carlo Pizzati, Jessie Cole, Jay Griffiths and Geoff Dyer.

Intimate Instincts

27th October: 10.15 – 11.30
Indus. Festival Hub, Jl. Raya Sanggingan
Sometimes the smallest details tell us the most. In their moving and memorable books, these writers draw on intimate interactions of ordinary families in extraordinary circumstances. They share the craft of writing that is based in truth, the necessity of going to dark places, and the magic of the cracks where the light gets in. With Rosemarie Milsom, Julia Prendergast, Jessie Cole and Gabriela Ybarra
