Ubud Writers & Readers Festival and Writing WA announce partnership festival

Writing WA and the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (UWRF) have announced a partnership to bring the literary festival to Perth.

The inaugural Ubud Writers & Readers Festival Perth will be held on 8–10 October this year. UWRF Perth will be a hybrid festival of live events at The Rechabite Hall in Perth and in Bali, with digital participation from interstate and international literary guests. All events will be live streamed and allow for real time interaction with live audiences online and in both cities.

The three days of UWRF Perth will launch the full UWRF festival for 2021, which will continue in Bali until 18 October. This year’s theme is ‘Mula Sarira’, which can be interpreted in English as ‘Self-Reflection’—an exploration of ‘who we are, what unites and divides us, and what drives our actions’.

See the UWRF Perth website for more information.
