A message from our Founder & Director, Janet DeNeefe

Posted: 25 September 2017
Over the past few days, local authorities have been preparing for the possible eruption of Mount Agung, 35km northeast of Ubud. There is no imminent danger for areas outside of a 12km radius of Mount Agung, and the Balinese community are showing an incredible amount of support to those in affected areas who are being evacuated.
At this stage, it is too early to speculate whether an eruption would impact on Ubud Writers & Readers Festival – if at all. We will update all ticket holders of any changes to the event as we move closer to the date but for now – still one month out from the event – it’s on with the show.
Janet DeNeefe,
Founder & Director.
