Teta Alim

Authors / Writer

A 24-year-old writer based in Washington, D.C. Her pronouns are she/her. She was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, but grew up in upstate New York. Her heritage is a mix of Gayo, Jawa and Sunda. Her conversational Indonesian is passable (probably), but her reading comprehension and writing skills in Indonesian are pretty hopeless. If you have an hour or two to spare, talk to her about music (and if you really want to get her going, ask her about Daniel Caesar). She has studied abroad in London, England, and Shepparton, Australia, but feels most at home in D.C. Most of her family still lives in Jakarta Timur. They also live in parts of Aceh and in Bandung.

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
