Tim Hannigan

Authors / Journalist

An author and journalist specializing in Indonesia and the Indian Subcontinent. His Raffles and the British Invasion of Java, an account of the five-year British interregnum in 19th-century Java, won the 2013 John Brooks Award. His most recent book is A Brief History of Indonesia.

Born and brought up in Cornwall in the far west of the United Kingdom, he first came to Indonesia a decade ago as a globetrotting surfer. That first journey – through the outer reaches of Nusa Tenggara at the height of the wet season – was the start of an enduring fascination, and he soon returned to live and work in Java, first as a teacher, and then as a journalist and photographer.1

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.
