'Sekala-Niskala' or The Seen and The Unseen is the theme adopted for the Fourth International Ubud Writers & Readers Festival where participants will be wooed with four days of inspiring discussions, performances, literary lunches and readings in one of the world's most beautiful settings.

Discussions on world religions, mysticism and the power of the paranormal will grace the stage alongside other global issues will be explored in keeping with the theme, Sekala-Niskala/The Seen or Unseen.

Sekala-Niskala is the Balinese principal that holds that we all live equally in two worlds; the seen or conscious world Sekala and the unseen or psychic world Niskala.

Join like-minded writers and readers for four days and nights of intimate interviews with authors from all corners of the globe, as the unseen becomes the seen and more. Enter Egypt with writers from one of the world's most ancient lands, hear tales of life from the home of the Arabian Nights with Somaya Ramadan and Iman Mersal. UK writer, Patrick Gale, author of "Notes from an Exhibition" will lead you into the realms of troubled families and distorted relationships.

Indonesia's near neighbor of India will lead a captivating journey through one of the most mystical countries on earth. 2006 Booker prize-winning author, Kiran Desai will share her inspiration for her award-winning novel, "The Loss of Inheritance", while acclaimed author, journalist and former UN diplomat, Shashi Tharoor, will challenge with his thoughts on literature, leaders and world peace. Richard Flanagan, one of the most exciting voices in contemporary Australian literature will discuss his best-selling novel "The Unknown Terrorist."

Indonesian poets and writers will also be in attendance, alongside Asian voices from Singapore and the Philippines. Malaysian author, Tan Twan Eng, long-listed for the 2007 Booker-prize, will discuss Penang in the 30's and compare notes with Canadian award-winning writer, Madeleine Thien with her novel "Uncertainty."

From across the seas, Hagar Peteers from the Netherlands will stir listeners with her words and, on the home front, the enigmatic Cok Sawitri will leave the audience breathless with her haunting performance poetry.

There will be sessions and workshops on the craft of writing for passionate readers and writers. Celebrate the written word at the free nighttime events and partake in literary shenanigans into the early hours of the morning at the Casa Luna Festival Club.

The 2007 Festival explores new frontiers with writers from the South Korea, East Timor and Sweden. They will join award-winning writers, poets, playwrights, filmmakers and performers from Indonesia, Asia, Australia, England, Canada, France, United States, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and beyond in an unforgettable exchange of culture and ideas.
