The Second Mussoorie International Writers' Festival, hosted by Woodstock School, sponsored by the Winterline Foundation.
"Writing About Nature" is the primary theme of the 2008 festival, bringing together authors who focus on subjects such as conservation, climate change, wildlife and other
environmental issues. In addition to nature writers we will also invite novelists, poets, dramatists, film-writers, editors and literary agents. The schedule of events will include five full days of public readings, panel discussions, media events, classroom visits and book signings. Many of these events will be open to the public.
As an added feature, Mussoorie Writers 2008 will also sponsor writers-in-residence throughout the year. Distinguished authors and translators will be invited to spend 2-6 weeks in Mussoorie working on specific literary projects.
2008 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival
The 2008 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival will take place from the 14-19 October. The theme of this year's Festival is Tri Hita Karana - the Balinese concept of balancing
Man, Nature, God.
This annual celebration of international and Asian literature is centred in the small hill town of Ubud in Bali, Indonesia. Ubud is generally recognised as being one of
the most important artistic and cultural centres in Indonesia.
The main program of the Festival comprises four days of panel sessions in which writers, journalists and academics discuss issues of society, religion, politics and
culture from a literary perspective. These sessions take place at Indus Restaurant overlooking the Campuhan valley and a neighbouring venue, an old bank building nicknamed the ‘Left Bank Lounge'. Both venues are located on Jalan Raya Sanggingan, less than 5 minutes drive from the centre of Ubud.
The Festival also offers a wide range of writing related workshops for adults such as travel writing, writing for the media, editing and publishing, memoir writing, short
story writing and novel writing. For convenience, workshops are held in venues close to the festival centre at Indus and the Left Bank Lounge.
