Ubud Writers And Readers Festival 2013

This 'Springfield Road' crowd funding adventure now brings me to Bali for the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival It's a little like Hay-On-Wye Festival, but swap the beautiful valleys and soft sage hills on the borders of Wales for the humid heat of the middle of a lush and emerald Bali with a glorious tropical back drop of palm trees, banana plantations and rice paddies. 
With over 191 writers, thinkers, artists and musicians from 25 countries participating in over 220 events across 50 venues all in the arty town of Ubud, needless to say 
I'm so looking forward to the whole experience, listening to exotic music and watching the traditional dancers and ceremonies, to checking out new poets and authors from all over the world, here come heady days and long, long nights of lively and interesting talk and lots of laughs and more...
