Karma — the theme of this year’s UWRF — is derived from the Balinese Hindus’ spiritual principle of karma phala, where each action has a consequence equal in force, and similar in form.

UWRF, one of the most prominent literary events in the world, will feature 180 speakers this year.

They will excange ideas along with participants and guests across 170 programs during the four-day festival.
