Outside of Indonesia, little is known about this country’s writers and their work. Helping to change that situation is the annual Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (UWRF) which, since the first festival in 2004, has brought more than 350 Indonesian authors to Ubud to stand alongside and to interact with literary peers from around the world.

In this volume’s stories and poems, penned by authors from Sumatra to Papua, of different ethnic groups, language and religions, the common thread is the affirming voice of human expression.
